This All-Aluminum iPhone 5 Looks Pretty Freaking Cool to Me

Gizmodo reader Codi Bonney had a cool idea to stop the paint of his iPhone 5 to chip off: take the whole thing off. "I'm still working on sanding it, this is what I've got so far," he said in his email. It looks pretty neat.

I think he should have done the sides only, leaving the back in black. You know, like an iPhone 4 without a freaking black back. I like that look.

You can monitor his progress on Twitter.

See what I mean? The phone looks cool from the top, but the back is not that nice. [Thanks Codi!]

So... without the paint how carefully does it need to be held to not kill the reception?
