    Default Very frustrated: My bad luck with conversion kits.
    I'm on my second purchased conversion kit that I am unhappy with and decided to seek the wisdom of the modmyi forums.

    My first conversion kit was purchased as "gunmetal" yet is actually completely mirror. Not the brushed dark gray as it appeared in the photo.

    My second conversion kit was purchased as "purple" and appeared to be a dark plum looking color. I just got it today and it is damn near fuchsia, if not hot pink:

    Can anyone recommend a site where I can get something nice and dark? A dark gunmetal, a deep/royal purple, maybe a crimson red? I'd really appreciate it; I am too afraid to be deceived again.

    Side note: Each was purchased from separate retailers.

    And direct link to my "purple" purchase:

    I felt my inquiry was more specific than detailed in that stickied thread.

    Alas, I suppose it is all I have to work with.

    Thanks.

    If you want something dark I would recommend the Mirror green kit or the dark blue kit, although the blue one may be a bit too light for your tastes. I've never really encountered anything dark aside from that mirror green kit. It looks pretty cool though, the only problem is a lot of people think it's black at first. Here's a pic I took for reference.

    Ooo, I do like that green. Does the mirror across the screen hinder the display to any extent? Seems it would change the hue, no?

    I haven't noticed it on the green. I know the blue (mine) gives a yellow tint to the screen but that green (my brothers lol) looks great. The only issue that I've had with the mirror kits (aside from the very faint yellow tint on mine) is that they are much more difficult to see outside when the sun is out. My phone is nearly useless even with the brightness all the way up and an anti glare screen protector on when the sun is shining.

    Do you have your own store? Most of the suggested ones have really low quality pictures or ones that are (as I mentioned) very deceiving.

    I like the really high def ones at different angles. Makes much more sense from a marketing perspective.

    Yeah I hate the stock pictures they show. I run a repair shop in my area for iPhones, iPods and iPads (and miscellaneous other electronics) so I do a lot of the color swaps and I like taking pictures from a bunch of angles to really show what the kits look like on the phone. Plus you're right, much more sense to show them off instead of just taking a quick low res shot of them.

    I haven't heard much about YoYoBase, prices don't look too bad
