Red Accents for USB, Rocker & Power Buttons???

If you'll recall, the power button, volume rocker, micro usb port as well as backplate were all the infamous red color, prior to the Incredible's release . . . .
A few of us actually liked the uniqueness of the red backplate and photos of a version of the phone were even leaked, sporting a black backplate & red buttons . . . .

I noticed yesterday that the micro USB port trim (currently black) has a little piece of the plastic chipped away. The interesting thing I noticed is that, below the black, I can see a hint of the red.

Has anyone else noticed this? anyone that dropped their phone maybe?

Just thought I'd throw this out there to see if anyone else can confirm. . . . . personally, I'd prefer red accents for the three areas.
There was someone on here not too long ago that was selling a product that added red accents to most of what you mentioned via adhesive film (like screen protector material I think). I think they may have been chased off by some of the local friendlies, but a search may turn it up for you.

Can you make something to cover the obnoxious Verizon logo on the front of the phone? Unfortunately, my case doesn't cover it.

When the rocker/power overlays are available, I may go ahead and place an order. I'm skeptical as to whether or not they will stay on, but I might give it a try anyways.
Not a huge fan of the "body kits" though . . . I'd definitely go with a clear one if there was a way to make it contour the back and completely cover the phone.

Also, I lightly scraped away some more of the damaged area, to reveal more red, so I supose the black can/will wear off completely . . . I haven't tried on the power & rocker buttons yet, but I may try in a descrete place, covered by the battery cover.
