    It looks so awesome! I desperately want a sparkly green berry and this might be the answer! Let us see pictures! And not to sound totally daft but is it permenant? If not will it ruin the housing when you take it off?

    That I don't know. I wouldn't think it would ruin the housing if taken off since it can be simply removed from cars without any ill effects.




    Now that I have the phone apart and ready to work on the front I'm left with whether I want to do a subtle change or a drastic one.

    I'm thinking subtle and most easiest which is leaving the black around the screen uncovered.

    I like leaving the mirror showing...I have a friend who painted their curve and but vasseline all over the mirror and lense and it just looks more custom.

    I've been searching around and I can't seem to find anything online that sells just the vinyl...any ideas?

    that looks really good! awesome job! i was also wondering about taking it off at some point, i wonder if it'll bring up some paint with it. i had ordered a decal from decalgirl.com and when i took it off, it lifted not the paint, but i guess the shiny laquer finish on some of the bottom parts.

    That looks really cool. Does it seem like it will peel around the edges easily? How long did it take?

    So far it doesn't seem like it would peel. But I also wrapped it around the edges.

    The back took about 30 min and the front about 2 1/2 hours.


    Thank for all the compliments everyone! I absolutely love how it turned out!

    That looks so good! I have been dreaming of an all white Berry since I got it (I am actually debating gettng a refurb 5th Gen iPod in White even though I have a silver 6th Gen Classic because I adore the white)...and if this turns out I may just get some white vinyl.

    You just made me realize how nice a white BB would look...I'm gonna have to run up to PepBoy's tomorrow and get me a little white sheet.

    That turned out fantastic! Way to go on taking your time and doing it right! Almost wish you'd done a photo tutorial to show the steps you took. After seeing your results I'd give that a shot.

    My only question is if you wrapped it around the edges of the key holes, does it make any of the keys stick?
