    If your icons are damaged and you don't have airbrush equipment:

    - cook your icons
    - peel off the damaged coating
    - clean your icons with petrol
    - grab a flask of nail lacquer from your well equipped girlfriend (don't ask her, she wouldn't allow to use her stuff !!!)
    - paint and polish your icons

    Thanks. Chrome wouldn't match the frame, that's why I had to go grey.

    The chrome layer has a copper base and does not go off after cooking the icons. Seems to be a very stable coating.

    I used boiling hot water and a dishwasher tab.

    Do you use a standard superglue to reattach the icons? I have been wanting to modify a set of Jawbones, and this post was really helpful!

    I'm glad that my experiences will help others.
    You can use a double faced adhesive tape. Two small pieces for each icon are enough.
