Custom Chrome Backing for HTC Titan

XDA Member Finalforce1111 shows us how to get your Titan back cover shiny with chrome by using sand paper which is used dry in grades 400, 240, 120, and 40g.

The whole process takes about two hours. Be sure to follow the instructions provided as the order of the abrasive papers is important to deliver a well finished polishing.

I have “Chromed” the Cover of my Titan and have made some pics during the procedure.

The whole process took me 2:20 hours and I must admit that I like the result but check it out!!

I used 400, 240, 120, and 40 gr Paper, to make the finish I used the 40, the others you can choose what you like most, 400 gr takes longer to remove the color but is more accurate and soft to the cover, I used after 1 hour to take only 240 and 120 because it took too long…

The first picture left shows all materials I had used, don’t forget to stick the plastic pieces and the buttons!!!!

The pictures are in an chronological order from left to right so first starts left and the final result is on the right.

Continue on to the original thread to find more about the steps involved to chrome your Titan.
