    What do you guys think!? It's tough to capture the true champagne tone, wanted to go back to school from spring break with a new look. :cool: Fake 5S button looks better than I thought it would. :D Just looking for opinions

    I can only see the champagne on the home button, not the back.

    Looks fine. I assume better in person. Same with the stock iPhone 5s. It looks pretty crappy in pics IMO.

    Some Formula 1 racer favored a black car with gold trims. It's OK but its been done.

    IMO, champagne too subtle with black. Black needs a more blink gold.

    What process do you take to modify this? I've been researching something similar in the accessories section: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1713803

    Someone replied and linked me to ANOSTYLE.

    I really like what you've done.

    i think a less shiny black would make it look better.

    The subtleness is what I think makes it so awesome. Only certain people will notice it's champagne, but I catch A LOT of people staring. I bought a replacement housing from China in the champagne color I can post a link. Here are some more shots.

    It looks ok, but I think the gold needs to be brighter.

    Ok, champagne. It still needs to be brighter in my opinion.

    How much was it? I might be interested in doing this to an iPhone 5 if it isn't too spendy.

    That gold ring for the home button looks really good on the black bezel. Looks like you did a good job replacing the parts. Looks stock to me (if that combo existed stock).

    Thanks! I was really worried about having a butchered looking phone hahah. I made sure the company printed all of the wording on the back to look oem. I broke the camera (no physical damage really) and decided to make it a mini project :D. Glad I did. Perry is also funny Ive seen too much of that stuff lol

    Damn it looks just like it. Haven't payed any attention to the Zune in years, flew right by my radar. Is that a special edition?

    It's the basic model that was out at the time.

    How'd you do the home button? Looks really good! I'm not impressed by the real thing to be honest, it's too springy feeling.

    I think that looks awesome. I would have really thought about buying that, and not the white and silver one had Apple released this one. Really though BeeJee that looks really good. Nice job.
