    They are stickers. Super thin you can feel the weave in the carbon fiber. It's as thick as the clear back back piece

    Very nice. Are there any issues with the flash or when taking pictures? Did you buy the CF pieces like that or did you cut it yourself to fit the glass (Ive only seen the full back CF)? Also was the CF noticeable thinker than the BGs clear protector? Too bad they no one makes these which have seamless transition between CF and clear back protector.


    Thanks.

    They are the same thickness as my bodyguardZ back clear piece. It's a smooth transition from that and the cf.
    they were cut out ready to go the cuts are pretty precise.
    No flash problems

    I like it!
    What does the carbon fibre apple look like? Accurate size?
    Can you link to the clear part? The only one I found covers the whole rear and not just the aluminum.

    wow, that does look really good.
    just to be clear, you did have to cut the Bodyguardz, correct? afaik, they only offer a one piece back.

    That looks great! Post up some pics when you get the black front piece too. I may be going that route as well.

    This stuff isn't real carbon fiber, so I'm curious what it is you're feeling when you mention the weave. Does the sticker have a texture to it?

    Thanks.

    they do have a texture but it's pretty minimal. I just got the white CF kit from icarbons for my IP5. however, I only bought the kit for the side protection so my bumper doesn't scratch the sides. I might use the other pieces eventually but not now.

    Wow that looks great. I am assuming that there is no interference to the antennas when making calls etc.?

    of course not. why would it? they're just small sheets of vinyl.

    Well seeing as just touching the antenna on the 4 caused signal drop I wasn't sure if or how these would affect the phone?

    You did have to cut the bodyguardz center piece yourself right? Because they only come in one long back piece.

    the ones at the mall come in three pieces. they might have a full piece now.
    sorry just checked it was ghostarmor.

    doesnt change signal strength.

    it feels like a weave. its not glossy or anything and looks like real carbon fiber.
