    Looks super cool... if my chrome ever starts getting scratched up I may just try this.




    If someone has done that here please post your results.

    I'll do it as soon as I see the first few scratches. Can't void warranty right? (God knows I need it...)

    That looks awesome but I don't trust myself with a razor blade on my phone!

    No need for a razor blade. I taped my phone up today just to test it out and was able to get it perfect without any razor. Just no scotchbrite pad.... but I may just have to pick one up this weekend.

    I really like the way that looks.
    I think I might pick up a scotchbrite pad this weekend.

    I may wait until I get a few scratches on the chrome, if that happens, but if you get it done this weekend post a few pics.

    Will do!
    I was thinking about doing the volume up/down and ringer switch too since it appears to be the same material.

    That looks really great, i might do it after i get a lot of scratches on mine. I wonder if there will be some cool method to make the back of the 3g iphones better. I already have a few scratches on the back

    Doubtful with it being plastic or some high tech plastic as rumored.

    The only thing I see by spiffying up the back is:

    Me too for the iPhone.

    But I wanted one for the faceplate of my 360.

    Hey guys, just got done 'brushing' my iPhone and it looks great!
    I'm cleaning it off now since the electrical tape did leave a little bit of a residue. I'll be posting some pictures soon!

    Hopefully this link works:

    Enjoy and sorry for having such a poor digital camera.

    reaktor,
    did you put the electrical tape right onto the invisible shield?

    I actually didn't put any on the front. And I ripped off the invisibleshield backing off because I wasn't happy with it.

    Getting the tape perfect takes patience but it's worth it.

    Nice, so you didn't put anything over the screen? How much pressure did you apply and how long did it take to get the look you wanted? I'm going to have to pick up a scotchbrite pad tomorrow and practice on my girlfriends phone....

    Well the invisibleshield front was on my screen still. I suggest taping up the front just in case. Took me about 5 minutes. I started off pretty slow with not much pressure but then got the hang of it. The trick is to use large motions instead of a quick back and forth to really get the lines looking good. I used the corner of the pad and pressed down with one finger pretty hard which seemed to make it easier.

    someone mentioned residue from the electrical tape. If were all going out for the scouring pad, you could also try painters tape. It's made for similar applications.

    Electrical tape seems more durable to me.
    And I used a Q-Tip and some rubbing alcohol which made the residue come off very easily.
