Has anyone taken the housing of the phone off

Prepared an acid dip bath
and dipped the phones casing into it to take the rubber off it?

I wonder what the phone looks like without the rubber
and what it feels like

You could find an acid that will not harm the aluminum alloy but would strip off the rubberized coating

then once the case is back dry and nice
you could put it back on

Has anyone done this before?

What are your guys thoughts on this

Let me know!!!!!!!

I saw a thread where a guy had stripped the battery door, but that's as far as he went.

Is it even all aluminum alloy? I dropped mine the first day I had it and took a decent sized chunk out of the corner by the headphone jack. It looks like it's made out of plastic or some other composite material (it's black, not silvery).

I would love to strip all the rubbery coating off. I wear carpenter jeans most of the time and keep my phone in the leg pocket; the rubber coating makes difficult to slide in and out of the pocket though.
