    My Custom Painted Droid...

    I usually paint my gadgets, so customizing my DROID was a given.

    Here's my DROID painted in a mixture of Imron clear, platinum pearl, and metalflake... and a touch of gold.

    I lightly sanded both the front lip, and the 'band' that surrounds the entire device, 3/4 (from the long edged) on the back panel (the other 1/4 I painted in gloss black).

    The big advantage, besides having a DROID unlike any other, is that the metalflake gives the edges a much grippier surface, making it less likely to slide out of my hand.

    Additionally: I injected a bit of silicon into the area just under the volume rocker so as to eliminate the slight looseness it once had.

    Anyone else starting to 'customize' their DROID?

    Looks great! You could probably make some money doing that for others.

    I dig it. I'm afraid to paint mine, personally, just because of the risk of voiding my warranty or getting any BS from the insurance company in the event that anything happens to my handset.

    Yep, they would be all over it if in 9 months it stops working and say you voided the warranty.

    Looks nice though

    Where in the warranty does it say you can't paint it? lol painting it would have no issues with how it works.

    Edited: sorry unless those are things over the buttons then it's possible.
    Resistance is futile.

    Oh come on.. You know they can do whatever they want, and if you're having issues they can't explain, they'll blame the paint or anything you've done to it that they don't like. Maybe they'd say the paint caused it to operate at a higher temperature, or that it somehow got inside the device and ruined the processor.. Who knows, but I have a theory: if I can get screwed over, I likely will! lol
