    Default Housing Replacement! Where to get?
    Hey guys, This is maybe my 3rd time posting on this forum so apologies in advanced! But my question is, where do I buy a nice quality housing replacement from?


    I have been buying from eBay lately but I found that most of the time the bezel does not sit flush with the housing, and I normally would have to glue it down.


    Where is a good site? Thanks! :]

    Also, where is a good place to find different color housing? Instead of just white and black?
    :]

    How hard is it to pre-drill that hole?!? They drilled all the other holes except that one. Where is the logic in this?

    I think they do it purposely to make us order pre-assembled housings.

    I just use a very fine tipped Soldering iron! But be careful if you melt it too much the hole will be waaay too big.

    has anyone ordered iphone 4 parts from either of them? I think the prices are low enough for me to give em a shot.

    do people just use these tools that these sites offer? could anyone recommend a decent tool kit?
