    Okay just a few days ago i just replaced my DS phat's housing and battery. It plays like new again. I noticed how much easier it was to keep clean due to the mat color white would not show off any finger prints or smudges. So i though, why not do this for for my 3DS. I have looked at Deal Extreme and Ebay and for similar cases for my 3DS but did not find any. Do they even make such a beast right now? If so, where? Thank you for any input.

    I really wouldn't try to replace the 3DSes case.
    I spend 5 hours replacing a DS lite case and 3DS should be a lot harder.
    It could also cause trouble with the stereo cameras.

    I have looked at this source, but I wondering if any of you have experience with these? Who or know of any way to make sure they are legit?
