As this has been written before I'll just add my thoughts here. As I have said, I have purchased several backs as this is a hobby for me. It's fun to see how everyone approaches it. So I mounted the dodo case back and just took it off - comes off nicely and just stuck it to a piece of wax paper for storage so I can use it again.

So on to the icarbon - if you have never worked with Di-noc type carbon fiber it is a 3M heat sensitive film that is sticky on one side - it really does not like to be used again as it will stretch on coming off. But this went on easily with a white square to cover the apple logo - nice touch. As was said before, the trick it to get the corners down without creasing - and I use a heat gun on low to do it. It takes JUST A SECOND to get it malleable and then it sticks fine.

So here you go - this will stay for a while and see if it can mount in the portenzo coming...looks good with my gray poly SC...so far no prob with magnets sticking thru it...

Wait, did you say that you put a "white square" for the Apple logo? :confused:

In the installation video, it shows two iCarbon stickers for the apple and the leaf.

oh crackers...

i should have gotten this one. they re did their design so the corners and stuff are better. I got a personalized gelaskins. i'm not a :apple: logo fan so that is why I went gelaskins but man the fit on that is goooooooooood. the gelaskins leaves the corners 100% exposed to damage. :(
