    Any good website to buy good quality crystal clear case/shell for Nintendo DS lite... or any other console, but in europe? and no PayPal
    But for now, DS lite would be good :yaynds:

    Im sure this thread will also help others if they are asking the same question :sleep:


    TKS! :wub:

    I got mine from Deal Extreme. They are kinda cheap and mine is cracked. You'll need to sand out the inside, because the components dont site perfectly inside.

    And im sure no one is asking this anymore.

    It reminds me of my GBC back in 1999 it was a clear shell and purple in color I loved it where can I buy crystal clear case but in different colors .

    I found this web site but I'm not sure if it doesn't use PayPal.

    Sand..out..? so it's not original, is it? :mellow:

    You have that shell, that's great :D tell me please, does plastic looks cheap or rigid or is it good quality and somewhat elastic.. i have impression like if you drop it it will shatter like a mirror :P
    and also, how does it feel when you play it compared to original shell.. i mean the buttons, squeaking of the plastic and so on... :)

    Please, do share details if you fill like it, i want to know it all :yaynds:

    Every body said "DX" I think it is ligit and a good web site
    it looks okay , but I think you should stick with "DX" if you live in EU then go with http://www.chipspain.com/index.php?cPath=&language=en&sort=1d ( they are expansive but they will deliver and with out Paypal)

    Nintendo doesnt make OEM crystal shells, hence the sanding.

    No, most of them a knock offs, chinese none the less. You have to remove a small layer from the case (well i had to) for the motherboard and all the other stuff to fit nicely.

    Does that mean that mold is not made correctly or it has leftovers of plastic

    and as for chinese.. all of my consoles to date are made in china :P and they are real originals xD

    they dont get the original cast from nintendo so they make there own using the already exsisting result of the mold (in this case they dissemble the DSLite and make a mold from that to cast from, however the flaw in this method os things can be slightly to thick / thin or slightly off
