Nexus 6p body swap

Postby dillegm Sun Dec 25, 2016 10:39 pm

When I purchased my Angler earlier this year, best buy was the only retailer that had it available at the time. They only had the aluminum (silver) colored model so I had to settle with that. Since then I've dropped it a few times, once in a kiddy pool where it was fully submerged for 20 seconds or so. Additionally, the corners are moderately dinged up and there were a few scratches.
I decided to do what I did for my Shamu's, and perform a body swap to a color I'd enjoy and it would be nice to have a new phone again too.
On a scale of 1 to 10 it was a 3 in difficulty. Not hard at all. All together it took about 25 minutes.
Tools required are:
Precision model knife, plastic prying picks, sim ejection tool, soft surface like a towel, heat gun or hair dryer and a small driver set. I like to use iFixit tools.

Here are the images I took during the process.

It's a very simple task, and while your in there, changing the battery is suggested, especially if your going to use the device for a bit longer.

Once you decide your doing this, there isn't any turning back. One thing I noticed was that you will likely damage the old casing enough that using it becomes very unlikely. I'm keeping mine, plus the visors which are in great shape, just in case I need them later.
