I think the 3rd one looks great and maybe ad the chrome apple like the first one onto the 3rd one.

I like 3 and 1, but 3 is the best. It just seems wrong to not have an apple logo on the back. Post your results, I'm curious!

You can count on it lol, Pics will be up within 20 mins of recieving them. but like said i waited a little too long and the shop is closed Dec. 20th-27th (seems long but what can you do).
Here is what i was thinking for the other housings? its a carbon fibre effet? the real thing would look 10X's better? and a pic of a very similar SKULL design that i was considering.

Omg those r nice man, on the pinks tho I'd go with 1, as it just seems more professional. But 3 is nice so either way it's a win

hmmmm....I'm starting painting housings cause I wanna make my own Saints housing....I would love if you (or your friend) could give me some details on what they did...I'm making my own stencils using an exacto (your friends look like they are laser cut) and then I'm airbrushing....do you know any details?The Next Generation of Phreaks.

These housings were made with this kinda film of paint. my friend painted the housing the metallic silver that skullz are, then he used a film with the design printed on it in black paint and the used and activator that dissolved the film and left just the paint on the housing. If you get what i mean? so this housing wasnt actually done with a stencil.
But my girlfriends housing is still being done and that needs a stencil made for it, i can ask him if he can send me some info about the steps he took to do it if you want?
I know he had to make a vector image of what i wanted and then we had a company make a stencil from it if that helps?
