    I was bored so I was trying to get my G6-Lite in my black dustcover, here is the result:

    Needed to use the Navy Blue back from g6-lite because its a little bit longer then the the one from the Dustcover.

    I am going to try this with my supercard Lite when it arrives, because I have a black ds lite and the Supercard lite is white

    How did you get rid of the insides of the front dustcover?

    I think I'll just try and see if I can paint the white cover black. If that doesnt't work out good, I'll just use the navy one. With my luck and skills I'm sure I'd just break the g6 if I tried to do that dust cover mod. But nice lookin mod anyway

    Cubewood, what did you do with the G6L's battery cause it needs some space just like the original G6L cart?

    i was thinking about moding my case too.

    where's the best/cheapest place to buy a tri-wing screwdriver for the back of the dust cover?

    I've been thinking about doing this even though I have a white DS Lite just so it was the same kind of white as the case (white with clear over it) and my G6 Lite doesn't line up PERFECTLY, heh.

    be careful with painting it makes things thicker and i dont think the G6 will fit after. You should see an old gba sp i painted its a monster now.

    If you just use a normal small screwdriver you can just screw them off too.

    i did this mod last week to my original white gba dust cover because to me the g6 white gloss finish looks tacky. there is no way you can do it solely with the original casing. you have to use the backside of the g6 lite case joined together with the original. dremel tool seems to work really well too

    I'm going to be doing this to mine (when Divineo USA gets off ther damn asses and ships it) and I'll post my pics. I took apart my dust cover and it looks like I'm going to use an x-acto knife or scalpel to remove the innards. You can also buy replacement dust covers from Nintedo. Go here and click on the DS Lite section. It's right on the next page and costs a mere $3.

    Someone also asked about the triwing screwdriver. I just bought one from Play Asia for $5.50 including shipping. Amazon also has one. I got it because I'm repainting my GBA SP and putting in a blue power LED.

    I tried this the other day without much success... Just can't get it all to fit right.
