    I really like the looks of my white inCase Slider, but what I don't like is the super-glossy finish...slippery to grip and a fingerprint magnet. So, I decided to sand blast it to give it a nice mat finish. I also cut a hole in the back to show the Apple logo. Looks good and its much grippier now. What do you think?

    Awesome, though I personally am not a fan of the logo cut outs. I wish all cases that are slippery were matte.

    looks good! What did you use to make the smooth cutout on the back?

    Good idea. Did they have a bit specifically for plastic? How did you keep it from cracking/melting? How did you "find" the spot for the logo? Sorry for the questions, but may do this myself.

    Think sanding a high gloss case with fin grit sand paper would give the same effect ?

    Sanding might work...I would use wet production paper (used for car body work) at around 500 grit, or use a fine steel wool...just go in one direction. The bit I have is just made for wood, but I ran it at slowest speed and I did not feed it very fast...no melting or burning.I then "beveled" the edge of the hole with fine round file.
    I just did some careful measuring to layout the hole.:)
