Inspired by cpjr Project Red iPhone i went out and got a case for my iPhone 3g.
The apple logo is a low quality reflective silver paint-over and the overall quality is pretty low.
Someone told me that these low quality case's will effect my reception greatly.
is this true?
Is there a website that sells these coloured housing but with OEM quality?
Please send links.

yeah there and at bottom tip for ya is to take apart phone and use orinal chrome bezel as this fits better make sure you cut away old glue from oe cover
As this helps it to sit flush with bezel especially on corners bave super glue handy as youll need it to glue sklent switch i did anyway and also dont over tighten screws

mine looked identical to yours on the inside and yes i have the moulding lines around the sim tray.
make sure you remove the oem bezel and use that, and post some pics
