I have a grey O3DS XL but I'm really not happy about it cosmetically. It has some scratches in the back and some black undercoat showing on the front. I originally wanted a deal but they are expensive and seems like they don't cover the curvy side areas, on which my device is also damaged. I don't want a case because it'll probably be too bulky. I've seen people take the plates off and then paint it but I'm anxious about it. I'm experienced in DIY stuff and I've been sculpting/painting figures for 2 years now. However, if any of you attempted this sort of thing I could use some advice. Also, please tell me if you think this is a bad idea or you would do something else to cover the damages. Thanks in advance.
