    I have an iPhone 2G and it is pretty beat up, I looked into a replacement back but putting it on seems really hard. I was wondering if I could use a blow drier instead of like industrial strength glue remover to take the frame and the volume buttons or if it would be more worth it to spend an extra couple bucks on a brand new volume button and headphone jack or if I should do a DIY paint job on it. Also any pointers would be appreciated.

    If you're going to paint it, do powder coating.

    No no no, do NOT preform 'Powder Coating' on your iDevice. This paint used is not recommended, as it is to thick and cause damage to the device itself.
    If you really wish to paint your iPhone to a colour of your suit, I suggest you use 'Stove Enamel' paint. If your not sure what it is, do your research on google (A must to do before you do anything your unsure of).

    Hope I helped

    Trust me, powder coating is the way to go.
