    Default Housing Swap to iPhone awesomeness.....
    So here's the deal. I swap housings for folks around here. Im also working on custom housings and such.

    These are OEM housings that have been airbrushed. So you still have OEM housing quality fit.

    I have 2 housings I have airbrushed playing around and "testing" things out. If anyone wants on on their phone they are up for grabs.

    Details (First Housing):

    Hugger Orange (No apple logo) Solid color

    This housing is perfect with a new chrome bezel that was carried for only a week.

    I also installed a ZAGG Invisible Shield on it. And I install perfect.

    I will install it for you $100 includes labor, the housing (w/ invisible shield) and shipping back to you (US) Priority mail. Paypal payment.

    And colorware will charge you $150 to paint the housing




    Details (Second Housing):

    House of Kolors Ultra Orange Pearl w/ Cosmic Clear (check out their page for a better idea of the color...it is sweet.

    Also comes with a new chrome bezel.

    This housing has a few minor imperfections but still looks amazing and would work fine.

    Fist off, as seen in pic the area around the dock is busted a little and if you look really close a few corners you can see the paint didnt apply flush (because of housing)....you can barely see a few lines.

    So....read above and understand, its looks great but isnt perfect.

    This one installed by me and shipped back same manner would be $70. Thats actually CHEAPER than buying an aftermarket housing and sending it to me.




    And here they are together, you can kinda see the difference in color. Pics DONT do the color justice!!!! Also, you can barely see the Apple logo shining through which looks kinda cool, gives it a "ghost" appearance.




    Oh, and just for kicks.....here's one I just got done with for me:

    House of Kolors Tangelo Pearl under Kosmic Clear WITH Pearl Apple logo! (Yeah, I like orange)

    I am thinking of offering the airbrushing service...once I "wrinkle out" a few details like the apple logo, which I did on the last one...but it was tough.

    If I do, yeah I can get any color you want..or combination of colors. And the service will probably run $100-$120. Which is still cheaper than anywhere else.

    how much would you charge to do a custom pearlescent paint color on a OEM 3G case? I would send you the case, 8GB Black, I can't put it back together, but I pay you to paint it a pearlescent color.

    I think it's called pearlescent, I'm talking about the pain that changes color depending on the angle and if you were able to keep the apple logo on there that would be awesome!
