Around the holidays I purchased a refurbished PSP from TigerDirect. The system itself works fine, I haven't seen any glitches or had any freezing. Also the battery life appears to be normal. The only gripe I had with it is that whoever used it prior to me wasn't that careful with it. There area a bunch of scratches and nicks all across the faceplate and the screen-plate. The games are playable but it would look even nicer if it was clear and furthermore it would be nice to have a brand new look to it. I haven't gotten a single ding on mine since I bought it. I keep it cased at all times that I'm not using it. I wanted to make it look new again and I found some things over the web. Apparently, you can buy stock faceplates as replacement parts from websites. I don't want any clear ones or neons or anything along those lines. I just want the stock one that I can put on so it will look good as new. Anyone have any experience with these things? Are they legit? Are they difficult to put on?

Here's an example:
