Restore your scratch up iPhone

5 03 2010

Personally, i think those iPhone sleeve, casing, silicon case… etc just make your iPhone ugly! iPhone’s beauty is when it’s without those ‘casing’. For those who share the same view as me will mostly likely have a scratch up iPhone after a being in your pocket with the keys and the coins. But fear not, there is a way to restore your iPhone to pristine condition.

Here is what you need:

  • Sandpaper 320(or 500),800,1000,1500,2000,2500,3000 grit
  • 3M Rubbing compound
  • Machine Polisher ( Power Drill or small buffer)
  • Microfibers
  • Sticky tack and or tape

Hack n Mod has posted a cool tutorial on how to give an abused iPhone a fresh out-of-the-box look.

To fix scratches on the back,  you need to gently dry sand it, then add some water to wet sand and polish it with a 3M Headlight Lens Restoration Kit. The detailed step-by-step pictorial offers information on what grit of sandpaper to use and how to get the mirror-like finish.
