    I want to customize my DS Lite and it looks as if I will have to buy 2 separate color shell kits for my needs. I'm looking for a reliable US-based website that sells them rather cheap. I can't pay $30 or more per shell that some sites charge.

    I know there are Hong Kong and Chinese sites that sell for about $10 each, but they all require Paypal only. I don't use Paypal which means I can't buy from them.

    Dealextreme.

    Anyway, my advice is DON'T TRY IT. I broke two DS lites when replacing their shells (power button snapped)

    Let me agree with tattar8... Dealextreme is the best one... yeah it's Chinese and uses Paypal but... you can get a Paypal account easily... and it's better than giving your card details to random sites... and Dealextreme is really cheap, reliable, and has free shipping.

    I have personal reasons not to use Paypal. It's not that I don't have an account, but I used to and no longer wish to do business with them.

    You obviously weren't careful enough. You have to be when fiddling with electronics.

    As much as I hate Paypal's service I might have to risk their "no account needed" checkout and order from an overseas site. US retailers want $30 or more for a shell kit.

    Dealextreme... I know about them. Has anyone heard of taobaodao.com? They might be a bit cheaper but I can find no online info or reviews about their company.
