    Does it stop antenna attenuation when you pick it up? :confused:
    Haha, looks nice though. Probably a bit too shiny for my tastes, but there are plenty of people out there that like "blinging" things up :rolleyes:

    Well to be fair i sprayed the phone chasis with a laquar to protect the gold, i stripped the phone right down to its chasis and plated then coated.

    I do not have any signal problem at all

    Yeah i had an idea of making a clear iphone so you could see all the parts but the middle chasis is pretty sold but the back would be pretty cool

    Whilst i don't like the aesthetics of your project, i do applaud the project itself, so kudos to you OP.

    please do post a guide. even if i don't do this, it'd be great to see your steps. i just worry about how the gold will tarnish/lacquer will wear off
