    I have the SGP Carbon skin on order, should get it in the next few days. That, with a black Bumper should be ideal.

    I would love to have an actual carbon fiber case. That'd be sweet.

    Do you guys think the carbon fiber by SGP or carbon bumper, would be ok to put over a bodyguardz or invisible shield? I don't really wanna remove my BGz but I like the Carbon fiber look especially with a bumper.

    Totally possible but you have to do so very carefully.

    Basically you only get one shot.

    The adhesive on the SGP Skin is fairly strong and if you go to remove the skin it'll pull up your clear shield along with it.

    I don't know about ideal, but it sure is sharp! Added the SGP Ultra Clear screen film to mine and I'm lovin' it.

    I have the Cubed 3D from SGP, the Carbon Fiber was sold out when i was lookiing but I dont think you can go wrong with SGP. Very good quality IMO.

    Saw this one at the local Radio Shack yesterday:

    http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4234980

    For 3G/3GS but maybe they will come out with a iPhone 4 version. I'd like it better if it didn't say "livestrong" on it ...

    ive got this also. personally i dont think its that thick, and i hear the SGP carbon texture is much nicer and better quality. teksure (lucky labs) is easy to apply tho. i think i will go to a matte back option

    none of these skins are actually real carbon fiber?? well vapor element had the real carbon fiber back plate but i got the idea, reasearch on some CF veneer products and i ended up doin this CF project on my iphone4...

    it feel like hard leather and looks superb..true twill weave carbon fiber. a bit thick but i belieave it is bearable and doable. havent tried it with the bumper cases..

    maybe some of you carbon fiber lovers can make your out backplate cover..
    if i get people in i can cnc machine for clean cuts already got the .DWG file.;)
    not to ask for any sales or anything but i make the ones in the pics by hand and dremel and thought the community would like to check it out.

    Does either of the SGP options have a cut-out for the Apple logo?

    Check out PhantomSkinz's Chromaticz and SGP. They are the best.
