Restoring the pulse Mini's black Paintwork

Recommended Posts

Updated with a guide :(

Hey People, Now we all know how easy the Mini is to scratch and chip so here''s a quick and easy guide to restoring it's kinda great black paintwork.

What's needed

-Black Acrylic Paint

-A Pulse mini

-A Small thin paintbrush

-Some tissue or cloth

-Some good light

1) Have a look at where the paint has been scraped off, This is where you'll need to Paint

2) apply a very Tiny bit of paint onto the brush and apply slowly and carefully where needed, If any gots on the screen or elsewhere, Wipe off Immediately

3) When done Wait for the paint to dry, around 10-30 minutes to be sure.

All done:D

Your Mini should look as good as new!

Below are some Before and after pics.

Hello.

I have not tried this, I can't guarantee if it will work or not.

I would try using a car paint touch up kit, and paint a very small amount on the damaged areas.

Maake suree you mask up the phone around thee damaged areas so it doesnt go on the screen.

I thought I am the only one with the paint chip....

I would wait until all black paint are gone and pretend it has a silver colour outter ring... ha ha.

Ok first things first this is my first forum topic (EVER!)

Now after a few months of general use and wear and tear my Mini's outer paintwork is begining to become worn, Now i know this phone can easily be droped and chipped but i ask for any (easy and quick) tips around how to restore the paintwork that makes it look new.

I have a few pics of it below, thanks :( (Look around the band that surrounds the screen and menu, home, back buttons)

Any tips on removing the T-Mobile logo on the back? I have tried the usual nail polish remover but no joy :(

Sadly no, you could try paint, or just stick a sticker of something over it.
