    Default New Rear Housing and how to make a Matte finish

    My old rear housing had a few scratches on it so I wanted to get another one to make it like new again. I purchased this one and it looks and fits great just like the OEM. I do recommend buying it, I also recommend using paypal to buy it because it is a lot more secure.

    I wanted to play around with my old rear housing so I got steel wool grade 00 and I buffed all the shine off of it and then used grade 0000 to polish it to a nice shine. It now has a nice matte finish.

    I recommend buying the above housing so you feel safe playing with your old one and then you can go back and forth between glossy and matte :-) Pictures below:

    Looks great! Any tricks you learned when getting the original back cover off? Or, does it come off pretty easy?

    Once you pop it up it comes off like a samsung back cover. It is easy
