    That is really sharp. I wish I had the confidence and skills to open mine up and create something as awesome as that.

    The hardest part is the volume, mute toggle, power button controls.. everything else is cake.

    Believe me I'm not made for opening phones

    But practice makes perfect.. Cleaning the glue off the bezel is the most time consuming but I put a new one on this so took maby 30 min to complete

    Most important thing I'd say is to make sure you glue the bezel correctly

    I don't think it's paint bud. It's plastic made to look like that.

    That sucks, I'm working on a complete i4 mod, it's a slow work in progress as it is my every day cellphone, but would you have any suggestions on how to coat the antenna?

    Highly suggest not painting the antenna .
    It might work, but is not worth it because the paint is bound to chip and wear off.

    Gold middle frames can be purchase from Swbox at a reasonable price. Seen them for much more $$$

    Nice project!~

    Looks great, but I always read those vacuum metalized coatings greatly reduce signal strength. Did you find any decrease in signal or Wifi strength?

    Have it anodized or powder coated. With powder coating you may lose a couple db on signal strength. My dads is powder coated black and he consistently runs 2-4db higher than mine (so mines got a better signal the closer to 0 the better). Not much of a loss, I don't know if anodizing will cause a signal drop or not. I've got one I want to get nickel or chrome plated but I've been lazy about it plus if it drops signal then I'm out a midframe.

    This is really nice man, I do this kind of stuff too, I've done a bunch of phones so far, helps bring in the $$ fixin cracks for people or selling 'em on eBay. I've ran into problems with these backs not looking as good as the OEM, which manufacturer do you use for the backs? What I'm saying in the replacement plastics I buy look slightly less than authentic and I am wondering if you've found a good dealer for em?
