    I'd throw that thing in the trash, it's hideous. [​IMG]

    I think it goes without saying that he did :/

    I think I was expecting an answer like this to a dumb question. [​IMG]

    Looks like you did a good job on the shells and whatnot. I don't quite agree with your colour choices though. Black is always nice, but your red is way too bright! I don't know if is your camera or something.

    Nah, it's a fair ferrari red. [​IMG]
    I've always loved red.

    Originally my DS was plain red, but I thought it looked like some kind of cheap toy in only one color. So I bought a new shell online. Then it was just combining the old screenframes and buttons with the new shell.

    Maybe nothing special at all, but I love it. [​IMG] At least I'm the only one with such a DS. ^^

    The picture doesn't really show the metallic effect of the cover and the dragons on it but well... ^^

    I did something close to this except with a OEM Polar White outside casing and a OEM Black casing inside.

    I really like it..I like red-black combination, and it looks really nice in my opinion....Maybe one thing that "kinda bothers" me, are white letters and those white lines on buttons, would be better if it's red, but you can't change that, it's great..

    I also did a case mod, we had a thread last year..

    EDIT: Here, I did some digging, and found it http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=87315

    You could always do something if it comes to buttons. [​IMG]
    Even if it comes to the outside of the covercase. You just need the right colorspray and some experience with it. And some transparent color to seal it.

    I did that once with an old Nokia case, so it should work for the DS case too. (BEFORE you assemble it xD) But I actually like the white letters. [​IMG]

    The transparent case looks quite cool too, although I wouldn't like to have a look inside my DS all the time personally.

    I should buy one of those cases depicting the limited-edition DS Lites.

    You really shouldn't worry about voiding the warranty when it only lasts like 90 days to begin with.
    Personally I think the DS looks alright - it should make a nice conversation piece - but that image overall is really ugly lol
    Photoshop doesn't necessarily make every image look better, you know

    maybe OP could take a few photo-tips from Toni, whose pics look super-slick

    Sure I did! [​IMG]
    And I enjoy postings like that one every time. xD

    Plus... As for the warranty I do not care... I could buy 3 new NDSL's every month so what? And I wouldn't have touched it if I wasn't absolutely sure about what I am doing.
    I could have gotten a creimson red DS, but the buttons and everything else would still have been black, so I preferred this way. [​IMG] (And it was much cheaper though.) And I've had the pleassant feeling of doing something with my own hands instead of jsut go and buy it. But I guess some people will never understand things like that, being quite narrow minded... well...


    And like I said the photos were taken with a crappy VGA camera of my old old Nokia cell phone. (Got a new Samsung already with a 3mpx cam) so no graphics suite of the world could ever have fixed ┬┤them.
    But I agree that the other photos look awesome! [​IMG]

    Thehehe I did it again. [​IMG]

    So far for the red one. I did like its old appearance, but it just wouldn't fit into a crystal shell, so I made up my mind to change it again to make it fit. Lies better in my huge hands then. xD Plus the shell really stabilizes the upper screen.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And as for my white one... I kniew that it wouldn't stay plain white for too long, although I really liked its simplenes. Well it's still white, with a veeery light blue transparent case, which actually looks quite nice. I didn't change the inner appearance though, it's still plain white there. But well... See it for yourselves... [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And yeah my camera is an damn old crappy thing... I'm too lazy to run over to my dad and get his digicam... it's too hot over here by now. xD Oh yeah and sorry for the dobble posting. ^^"

    I like the color-mix but I don't get what the scribbly-bits are on the top cover. If thats' some sweet custom art you should show it off. [​IMG]

    TO be honest, I REALLY like how this black-red combination looks....One of my favorite color combinations, and this is just very nice looking, great job!
