You can get dupli-colour custom wrap from super cheap $30 a can. I've done most chrome bits, just need to do my grille this weekend.

I used this ^

You can see how it looks on my build thread, I think it looks pretty cool.
I think the $10 cans are armor all, I've also got a can of that but am yet to use it.

Yeah look to be honest not too well haha. Granted I just wanted it done so I barely cleaned it or anything. I've also hit a couple of things which doesn't help. I did about 3.5 coast on sports bars (which are going well) but the nudgey probably 2.5 coats. I can show you a pic if you want, just peeling off on the lower sides.

Check out under general discussion and there is a thread about replacement knobs. They look so much better.

Haha. It's a good phone Dave only reason I got it is because my old phone was smashed and this was the replacement through insurance. I have 2 issues with it. At the start of a call say the first 2 seconds of a call apparently I sound very distant. (Known issue)

2nd is battery it's quite good with moderate to light use probably a couple of days. But my old phone Ascend mate 7 easily I would get 2-3 days of heavy use.

Good points though is camera is great, finger print scanner is second to none, phone is quite quick, I did get a fitness band with it at purchase which I quite like as it is also a Bluetooth headset. Oh charging speed is quite fast and the new charger design is so much better then the old micro USB design as it can go in either way.

My misses needs a new phone soon and I will probably buy her one as well.

perfect fit bar the middle one which I shaved 2mm off to fit snug and I also Glued it to be 100% sure it wouldn't move but really its a straight fit.

just take the old off shave 2mm off the middle and put on simple.
