    So far I have found 2 sites that claim/actually do modifications or upgrade the case.

    http://www.gigapascal.com/iPhone.html sounds all good and fantastic but hes been telling me for months before xmas and its 1 week before xmas... nothing... so I say ********...

    ww.colorwarepc.com/p-194-iphone-3g.aspx is paint so I dont know how great the quality and how would it wear but they seem to be a big reputable company...

    Any others?? I have searched high and low but these seem to be it if you guys have more info pls let me know. No slips on cases please just mods to the body itself.

    Since my iphone is in a case, I see little benefit on paying $$ to modify the case when its going to be covered anyways (and the risk of them damaging it)

    I would presume that these are custom cases and not a coating for your current case. They say they replace the battery as well which seems a bit odd.

    I do like the look of that coating though.

    Colorware either changes the plastic back with a colored back or paints over your original plastic back. Not sure which one.

    Gigapascal's kevlar thing is a joke or sth like that. Clicking the buy link shows they will ship 'in your dreams' and the iPod one shows 'Out of Stock' (has been like that since the website appeared).

    This might seem out of place but i looked at the price to see how much it was and it said the availability of the iPhone modification was Ships In: Your Dreams and the iPod touch one sold out. Does this make any sense or is it just me.

    Colorware has a great reputation for their custom painted cases.

    For much bigger bucks, Goldstriker (click here) will add gold, leather or diamond case modifications.

    colorware is very reputable and does very high quality work

    they are a spinoff of alienware, used to do all the coloring of their systems years ago

    cant speak to the other companies, i don't have any experience with them
