Step 1: Prepare Your Phone
Study how to open the back cover without damaging your phone. Searching on Youtube should find you some helpful video
Step 2: Begin Painting
Do not take the back cover off yet! Sand the edge of your phone with 1000G sand paper until it smooth. Then take out the back cover. Tape mask the other side. Wet sand it with 200-400G paper then finish it with 1000G. Then spray paint it thinly multiple times. Wait 15-30mins between layers. Then spray the clear coat and wait for 2-3 days to dry.
See the video for a detailed step-by-step!
Step 3: Finished!
Brag with your friend about your new phone :) Don't forge that it takes weeks for the paint to fully cure so go easy on it!
