    I'd like to swap this replacement white DS shell with a new silver one… But DealExtreme doesn't seem to stock them anymore…

    Is there any other store that still sells the Silver Fat Housing/Shells?

    I literally made an exact thread like this a while back.

    I don't see any anywhere outside of eBay, and they're quite expensive anymore. :wink:

    But luckily I had bought one on DX years ago and forgot I still had it, so I'm all set for my project, I wish you luck with yours.

    Holy shit, I just checked eachmall, tmart, and aliexpress, and nobody has them O_O

    I've bought them from eachmall, and I went to my account history to check, the link to the page 404s.

    I have a black one and two white ones here, unused, but no silver... You've got the white, and I'm not getting rid of the black one I have because I was gonna mix and match them.

    That's really weird that I can't find them anymore though...

    Do they sell shells for DS Lite? I'm looking to replace the scratched Cobalt Blue one with another color.

    Still very prevalent. everywhere I had mentioned (tmart, eachmall, aliexpress) has them. I'm sure DX and whoever else you can think of does too.

    Ugh, seems strange that these sites stopped selling them…

    Probably just based on demand, not many of us have DS fats anymore so they probably didn't want to stock something that hardly got bought.

    It makes sense from a retail standpoint, but it still sucks for those of us who need one.
