another one of those bored saturday projects... so my palmone zire 72 was starting to look pretty fugly with its blue rubberized paint peeling off, so i decided to get rid of it (the paint). broke out some 120grit sandpaper, and sanded away. now its shiny-shiny! like the zire 72 special edition, but better. frosted the LED also, so its not so bright and more diffuse. if you want to try this yourself, heres some tips: 1. sand laterally. if you sand in the same direction always, you get a nice brushed metal look, instead of random scratches. 2. don't sand too much. the whole body isn't made of metal, its only coated in metal. sanding too much will get you down to plastic 3. cover up the screen while sanding so you don't scratch it. scratches are bad. 4. cover all open ports. i didn't do that, so now my sd card goes "crunch" a bit when i put it in. still works, but i'll have to open the thing up and blow it out with compressed air.
