    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...

    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. :(
