Since my SPV E200 was a bit scratched, and with lost portions of paint on a button, I decided to paint it and to change its look at the same time. I've seen the Sharp GX25 Ferrari Edition and decided to make something similar with my E200.

Here you can see the original pieces of the E200 fully dismantled:

Once dismantled I used sandpaper to remove the old paint and then I used spray cans of Tamiya painting, these paintings are used to paint scale models.

This picture shows the pieces already painted:

And finally, the finished Voyager "Ferrari Edition" :):

Now, who is next? :twisted:

Beautiful! =D>

How did you get that Ferrari logo on the phone? Is it just a sticker?

Thanks, pzee.
As for the logo... yes and no. It was printed over a printable water decal paper from SuperCal.

Nice! Don't think I'll try because I doubt it'd turn out anywhere near as well! :)

There is no spoon... errrr.... sorry... I mean, there was no screen :)

The phone was dismantled entirely. The front piece is indeed made of two pices, the main one and a screen frame which is mounted over it.

Well, I don't took pictures of the process. I thought it was not necessary since there is a guide right here at MoDaCo:

I used Tamiya acrylic paints for models. If you want a lasting painting you must paint each piece several times, waiting the recommended drying time, and finish with several layers of transparent lacquer.

Anyway this paint is more sensible to scratches and so, you should be delicate with your phone once painted.

I've found the "how to". ;) Thx. :D

PS Opening the cover of the phone is the best system to destroy the borders of the cover itself... :shock:
