Finally turned my black 3G into a Red 3G
Well I said I would do it back in March, and people said post pics so here they are. btw i was waiting for my warranty to expire before i did it (July 31st) thats why it took so long
Those are just the insides
I can't believe how small the vibrator is!
There it is with and without flash
The original case, the new one, and a white one I bought off ebay
In the Griffin Wave case
In the wave case again, from the side
Angle shot in the Wave case
Angle shot back
Angle shot front
So, how do you like it?

How, how did you glue the bezel on to the new housing?

Looks better without the case! If it gets dinged up just switch casings again ;P

It wouldn't be possible to replace the rubber reception band and the aluminum backing from a 2G and add a 3G backing would it?

Then how is the bezel on the housing?

where did you get that red housing? it looks like it'd be near OEM, since it fit in that case.

The bezel just kinda sticks in.

looks good, i wanna do it to my 3gs, but i think i will wait till after the warranty, exchange it just before, and then attempt this. White iPhone 3Gs - 32Gb

Definitely don't do it while it's still on warranty!

Looks good. How well did the mobo and other components fit in the new case? I know that the non-OEM cases sometimes are a pain in the butt.
