Post Brushed Steel iPod Tutorial

The tutorial has been moved to a site I just made, now with more pics.

http://members.optusnet.com.au/brushedipod/

I am a newbie when it comes to websites, so I am impressed by what I did, so don't complain.

Nice tutorial. I cant seem to figure out the point of step 2 though. Why would you put the tape around the side of the ipod only on the metal? Could you clarify for me?

Hehe, step two is me being tired and not thinking. Its supposed to be the other way around. Put the tape on the plastic, leave the metal clear :P

fasterthanlight, come to Australia and I'll show it to you, I'll even do it for you

Adam, do you think it is possible to remove the brushed effect with some kind of polish, if people regret doing it?

It looks quite good, and prof. as you say, but I would never do that to my iPod, tho.

Wow - looks cool! I don't think I've got the guts to do it myself (especially since the iPod is sort of technically my wife's) but maybe someday...

yeah, but doesn't it still leave finger marks? It will still take the oily residue off the fingers won't it?
