    Just received and installed the black carbon fiber skin for my IPad mini. Thought I'd post some info and pics.

    I like to skin my Ipads and Macbooks - it provides great scratch protection without adding a lot of weight or ruining the size and shape of the device. I ordered the black carbon fiber skin for my black IPad Mini. Fit and finish is excellent, and installation is very easy - not nearly as error-prone as the wet-install skins.

    Some pics attached.

    I was considering an iCarbons skin for my iPad 4 when I get it this Christmas. However, those alternating squares of light and dark grey look distracting...

    THey have 6-7 different types for the mini - this was the only black one, and I wanted to keep the black color.

    Reply to glen e.

    Hey glen e, I just wanted to say thanks again for the timely reply. I've been having difficulty trying to find a full body cover for my mini, so I appreciate your response. I checked on Amazon, but the case I received was very poor quality (sagged on the bottom of the mini. It was a gel/plastic type material from Iblaston). Take care and I hope you have a good Christmas!

    ----------

    Hello again glen e,
    do you have any recommendations on where this case can be obtained?

    this is not a case - it is a plastic back and an apple smartcover.....

    apple store for smart cover
    switcheasy.com for back
    icarbons.com for carbon stripes...

    learn to make google your friend.....

    I was tracking that. I came up with nothing on Google. I'll check out switcheasy.com for the back. Thanks again again glen g. I appreciate it.
