Thread: Mod My iPhone- DYI

    Default Mod My iPhone- DYI
    "I wasnt sure where to post this i hope this is ok! "


    I could never figure out what to do with my Apple stickers that i got with my phone ill show you what to do with them in the end....

    Never liking the Rubber skin, or any type of cover for my iphone, They always made the phone bulky, I also realized that you can just get the black cover for the iPhone but to me thats extreme modding!!!...
    I took A simple piece of Plastic Vinyl that you can get from a "FAST SIGNS" or any where they make signs, or any where on the web they come in many diff colors and designs. I had some left over from my last project....
    First i started by cleaning up the phone with rubbing alcohol, then just started applying the vinyl on the back, and worked all the air bubbles out i tried not to get any when i applied it...




    Then with the heat from a blow dryer it made the vinyl very easy to wrap around the sides, i worked all the creases and bubbles out as well,





    Using an exacto knife or a blade i cut just under the chrome trim that surrounds the front of the phone, this gave me a nice clean cut and a easy guide to go with , If your extremly talented you can just free hand something, as i got close and near the speaker area i had to free hand my self....





    Oh, and dont forget to cut out the small hole for the camera,
    And finally what i did with my "Apple Stciker".....



    Well i couldnt get to perfect but as im walking next to another IPhone thy wont know that...lol
