Scratches all over my LG VX6000 phone

    It got dropped ... on pavement ... twice ...

    The case is scratched all to hell.
    Fortunately all of the important pieces are still in tact (lens, outer
    display is untouched, nothing broken.) It's purely cosmetic damage.

    Has anyone figured out a way to "touch up" the paint on these devices?

    Case or pouch?

    Actually fixing the cosmetic damage would probably be pointless.

    1) If you are that concerned/aware of the cosmetics, a home repair
    job probably won't satisify you.

    2) If you are skilled enough to do the job yourself to your satisifaction,
    it's probably not going to be cost effective (materials and/or opportunity
    cost).

    3) If you dropped it... on pavement... twice... you are more than
    likely to drop it again and have to repeat the process.

    4) If you dropped it... on pavement... twice... you are more than
    likely to drop it again and do more than cosmetic damage.

    (of course I've done things like spending weeks making a rack
    for my stereo).

    No, but this is the very reason that I buy a leather case before I ever
    use a phone for the first time :)

    You can buy faceplates for the VX6000 to replace the scratches. Do a Google
    search.

    Some time around 27 Apr 2004 01:52:55 GMT (give or take a month), someone who says they are named
    "Thomas T. Veldhouse" <veldy71@yahoo.com> fired up the tubes on the teletype and rambled on about:
