So I have tried the conventional BSE skins on my previous machines. I would say that the Matte version would be far superior in terms of look and feel. You can hardly notice it and feels like bare aluminum. Enough talk, here are some pictures. I used blue painter's tape to cover the ports and/or holes to avoid having and solution seeping thru.. Installation is pretty much straightforward...finished product: There may be some traces of soapy water since I have just installed. It will eventually disappear overnight. Overall, I am happy with this $30 purchase. You can obtain a 10% discount instantly when you subscribe to their email list.
