    I bought a couple ebay housings aswell for me and my sister...Absolute pain in the arse to try get it to fit even close to factory. I know it can be done but hope you had more luck than me. Post pics of your final result.

    paint the Oem one your self. Use krylon for plastic it works amazing. Slap a couple coats and a couple clears it will be more durable and fit 100%

    i have to admit the china knockoffs are horrible (compared to OEM atleast)and if you like me and the thought of you trying to paint something is hilarious just find a local shop to paint it for you. Most places will charge you around $30-40 if you just want a single solid color and $50-60 if you want a desing water transfered over the top.

    China case: $10 and 3 weeks waiting for it to arrive.
    OEM case: $30-$60 1 week and fits like a glove
