Alright I want a back like that but what materials do I need? I keep hearing "wet sandpaper" and "buffer" but what exact materials.

What type of grit sandpaper (and a stupid question, do I actually wet it or is there a kind of sandpaper that is called Wet Sandpaper?) and what buffers did you use? Or did you use polishers? Or what? I have the right back for this (e260, around 2006) but I need detailed instructions.

Alright 600 Grit, but what about the whole "wet sandpaper" thing? And I figure I can use any polishing agent and tool then?

Wet sandpaper is sandpaper that works the best wet while sanding.

It might say wet/dry or wet sandpaper on the label. It just depends on the company.

Alright, I'll try and see if I have some or if I can get a friend in the tech wing to get me some.

Already have the polishing materials.

Nice! You should make a tutorial and it will probably get stickied!
I'm so doing this with my other Sansa! (The one without my black paint!)

i havent been here for awhile so heres an update.

--i dont know if the chrome scratches easily since i have it in my dock, and now use my iPod

--i used the wet sandpaper to sand the back while holding it under my running faucet with the water flowing as low as it could go. I used 600grit the whole time, and water makes everything easier.

--here's the link to the zippersolution theme if no one saw it under h3mod themes section. LINK TO ZIPPERSOLUTION THEME "TYPE A". if you wanna know about type a, check out the official zippersolution page under h3mod themes.

I haven't been here for a while either!
Thanks for explaining it, I think I'll do it. It will make my Sansa even closer to an iPod!
Mine never moves anymore, it's on a dock hooked up to my stereo. I use my Fuze now!

Talking I made my Sansa smooth and shiny without sanding!

Okay, since my Sansa is rendered 98% dead, I am still waiting for a solution,
But while my Sansa was still alive I have achieved something great with it's back...I made it smooth and shiny...Well, not the krazykuul kinda chrome shiny, but just shiny ok?
Here's a picture:


Because of the lighting I don't think the letters on it shows but they're still there!!!!
Keep the identity of your sansa!

So here's how I did it:
All you need is:
-Your hand
-towel or paper towel or glass polishing cloth
-anything kinda of detergent(I used the spray for glasses)
(IMPORTANT: THIS EFFECT IS ACHIEVED IN A LONG PERIOD OF TIME, SO DO NOT EXPECT QUICK RESULTS, BE PATIENT)
So, on the bus, or any kinda transportation you guys use these days, you plug in your Sansa and enjoy your music. Usually you put your Sansa in your pocket where it's nice and warm? And you put your hand in there so you can switch songs or volume easily? Well, when your bored, why not Rub the back of your Sansa?!
It works!
It worked for mine!...After a month-ish.
Well every morning when I'm polishing my glasses I would polish my Sansa and my phone and my DS...That helped speed up the process
So now, my dull black backed Sansa has a shiny back now, my black DS is shiny and black now, and my Black Chocolate is the same as my ds.
Yes I like black.
Any ways regularly rub your Sansa's back and polish it because your Sansa need you love and attention and it will reward you with a shiny back!!

yeah, i saw that thread earlier. The flat finish they put on the backplate does come off easily, and that is how mine looked at one point in the process, but i really wanted the chrome mirror finish though.

nice alternative if you dont have all of the equpment.

krazykuul, your directions are very good. I shined up my previous one and one more to mirror like finish. I found I did have to push a little harder when buffing to get the scratches out but as you said, not so hard as to make it too hot to hold. There are five different grades of buffing compound and I used "H" grade (2-5 microns) made by "RYOBI".



I tried to shine up a third one but had a lot of trouble getting the logos off the back. I even tried a 200 grit sandpaper and it barely put a scratch in it. I believe there are two different types of backplates on the sansa. The ones which are easy to sand and buff have a smother finish on the inside of the backplate while the one I had trouble with appears more "Wrought Iron" dull look about it.

If it does then all you have to do is buff the scratch out... after all we did use sandpaper to get it shiny in the first place. I doubt you'll find too many things that will scratch it more than that.
