    Yeah, in the middle of the homepage it says "turn your favorite picture into skins" with the four teenagers sitting there grinning.
    I promised my daughter a cell phone for Christmas if the grades stay up and I will customize hers for her. Of course, she's holding out for a Q.

    Bought another friend of mine one for her laptop. She collects cows and we got her a cow skinit. I like that it protects as well as allows me to customize.

    You've come this far, why stop now. Just remember we want to see the finished product.

    Are You Serious?

    I don't know - I have a hard time believing that there has been painting of a Q going on here . . . I think he's just teasing us. How could you spraypaint the front without messing something up? Unsure

    i'll post pictues of the first paint job tomorrow (white) and the new one as soon as its done. i've decided on a thin layer of metallic flake green over the silver. if the battery cover comes out as good as i hope i'll proceed with that. the back is actually harder to paint as it requires more masking. the front is easy to mask off (the keybord comes off leaving just the screen.).

    I would have thought you felt more, say, llama-ish?

    I will assume you have the Verizon Q. I thnk you have had better luck painting the Sprint Q, since it has that textured rubber feel to it. It might have been easier to paint.

    And I agree with RB... I like a nice case for my phone but I hate a case of sticker that covers up what tyo of phone I have. I use to get those fitted case when I had chamshell phones but I hated them.

    Well I have stayed the week at my girlfriends house so I have not had a chance to get the pictures of my Q from my camera, I did however finish painting it and I did take a picture of the battery cover with my Q until I get to my cam. I settled on a coat of green metal flake acrylic over a coat of "chrome", the Q camera doesn't do it any justice so I'll take more pics as soon as I get the chance.

    Actually I have alltel..
