    I dropped my onto the cement steps a few weeks ago when I slipped on ice, it landed face down and scratched the outer surface. It was my wife who had the idea to use a Sharpie...and it worked great.

    I have a few nicks in the edge of the cover right up to the glass. I tried the Sharpie route as a temp fix, but being right on the edge, it rubbed off pretty quick.

    Going to try the touch up paint now. Hadn't thought of that. I was thinking a semi-gloss model paint, which might be cheaper, but its made for plastic and might not hold up well on the metal of the Droid.

    I tried the black model paint and it just didn't stick. It eventually rubbed off.

    I have some scratches and tried the sharpie and it wears off to fast. Best to find a good auto touch paint.

    Same here. Looked good for a few days though. Sharpie also fades quickly. It seems as though my small chip is growing. :( It's on the exact lower left corner near the screen.

    I used the following and it worked great:

    Dupli-Color Universal Black NG SF 100

    It comes in a brush applicator small bottle and made touch-up a snap. Matched perfectly and has stayed on for a couple of months now. Just be careful to not put too much paint on the scratch/chip.

    I'm going to try this. I have a flying squirrel that loves the Droid as much as I do (except as a chew toy....)
