    Hey guys! Hope you didn't miss me. I was gone for the majority of the time everyone was jailbreaking 2.0. So i really don't know anything. But, I noticed my Reflect case was really getting scratched up when I put it in my pocket so I decided to 'Bush Metalize'(idk about spelling) except I didn't use metal. So I just wanted to post some pics and a brieft overview of how to do it.
    So here it the end product:

    I used a sanding sponge that you can find at any local hardware store but normal sand paper will work just fine. I scrubbed from left to right. You don't have to push too hard. Once you start, you might think " what am I doing?" I thought that too but the results don't lie after awhile of scrubbing. Don't forget to get the sides. Keep sanding until you get the desired look. I recommend that you don't sand the little tabs on the bottom of both sides or your case top might not fit in with the bottom.
    Here is the sanding sponge.
