Sony Xperia X1i hand polished chrome battery cover

Sony Xperia X1i ChromeI like to personalize my gadgets.  One of the nice things about the Sony Xperia X1 is the battery cover is not a cheap piece of plastic.  Its a made of metal, then brushed to give it texture, and painted ( silver or black ). But the paint is not the most scratch resistant stuff.  After a while your Battery cover will look beat up.  So I got out some sand paper, and some metal polish creme, to take my battery cover from dull black, to a near perfect mirrored chrome finish.  I have included before and after shots along with instructions for those who might want to try this on their phone.
