    Droid touch up paint?

    I've fallen victim to the perils of the smartphone - I was walking down the sidewalk writing an e-mail and tripped over a loose piece of concrete, and the Droid broke my fall.

    Everything's still working great, but does anyone have any ideas how I can cover up the exposed metal around the screen? The scratches on the keyboard section aren't as bad as they look in the pic, so I'm less worried about that.



    Thanks!

    I have been told by 1 person that Harley-Davidson Touch up paint works well on Droid.

    Unhappy ouch

    This may sound kinda odd but I think that black Appliance paint is extremely close to the Droid color... try that. Can get at any home improvement store and sometimes Walmart.

    I'd think just about any auto touch up paint would work well.

    I laughed my assets off when you said it broke your fall XD. Poor droid, though

    enu33,
    At least tell us that you broke your nose, or skinned your knee, anything!
    Just don't say you sacrificed your Droid's natural good looks!
    Then again, cicks dig scars, soooooo.......

    I had a few small scratches on mine and a black magic marker took care of them. I can see the spot if I look for it but it is not really noticeable.

    I ended up using the Harley paint from Amazon.com: TOUCH-UP Paint Pen for BLACK FRAME: Automotive and it looks pretty good - it's not as reflective as the original finish so you notice it in some lights, but mostly you can't tell there's a huge gouge on the edge of my screen unless you're looking for it.

    Thanks for the advice and the condolences.
