Aluminum Bezel/Back Housing - scraped and dented after falling
I fell while jogging with my iphone 5 in hand. Not only did the screen shatter down to the LCD, but the bezel in the bottom right corner got scraped down/dented in. Thanks to the ifixit tool kit and repair manuals I was able to replace the screen, but I had to scrape away even more of the bezel to get the old screen out and new screen in.
MY QUESTION: Is there a way to at least clean the aluminum up without replacing the whole back housing?
I watched a video about polishing it to get rid of nicks and scratches, but because of the black anodized aluminum, it would turn silver. That said, now seeing the new gold iphone 5s, does gold anodize any deeper than black, or would that have the same result when polished?
Is this a good question?
