    Anyone knows where I can get a replacement for the Battery Cover Pack of the N3DSXL Pearl White? My stupid cousin from Dominican Republic broke it by pulling it too hard the last year...
    I tried looking at Ninty shop but it's US/CANADA and does not have my color.
    So does anyone knows some link from Amazon or Ebay that sells from EU?(I live in southern Italy, If you also know for the Stylus please tell)

    I do have tape xd the one in the pic is like 1 year old and I am lazy to change it because i use the microsd to download "not so legal games" that are over 500mb(pokemon, xenoblade, smash etc) and with ftp it would take Ages, anyways why would I buy a totally new JAP Console (that I could just region change) (Mine was was in discount at 199 euros). If the weather gets better i will try go at game store... Else i will just buy some other colors similar to white

    Thanks anyways

    I found this on ebay which is literally what i need. But i see produced in China and delivery from 5th to 11th of this month... I may just look for the whole face plate instead. I mean the galaxy skin is just 15,10 euros

    Hey if you are from the EU than Aliexpress is a good option, they now ship pretty quickly, at least to Spain.

    The double-sided tape is to attach the plate from the inner surface for more grip and to hide the tape. Those screws won't work anymore because the plate's mounting surfaces are torn off (holes are wider than the screw heads).

    Other than sourcing it from a used or broken pearl white n3DSXL, the last option is to:
    1. Buy another n3DSXL bottom plate (preferably black).
    2. Take it a professional auto spray painter to recolorize the plate to match your n3DSXL (strip, primer, color).
    3. Go to an engraver who can laser etch the label back onto the plate. Give them the broken plate for reference to scan a 1:1 copy.
    4. Go back to the spray painter to add the finishing clear enamel and polish.

    Do you know any links for just the cover plate or the whole skin? I don't really mind attempting to break the camera ribbon cable

    I am definitely going for option 1... as someone who does laser stuff does not exist in my city.

    Going to buy the whole skin at this point I don't mind

    I didn't find the white one but I have localised the Snes special edition.
