    I'm looking to replace a DS Lite's case to one of my choosing for various reasons.

    One, the current color isn't a favorite of mine, so I wish to get a case that better matches, well, red. End of story, I want a red case.

    Two, the hinge on it is broken and the case is cracked along the world famous right side where all the lights are.

    In short, it's in bad shape and I don't really care for how it would have looked when it was working in the first place. I have a few questions, but the biggest one is as follows:

    Will replacing the case fix the hinge? I mean, is the hinge part of the case it self (so a new case would obviously fix it), or will I need to buy a new hinge as well?

    This is a big question for me, as I want to get all the parts I need ordered by tomorrow, so I figure ask now before it's to late.

    And another minor question, can I get a 3-in-1 in red? [​IMG]

    Replacing the DS Lite Shell will fix your broken hinge problem.

    I've heard it every which way. Case, shell, cover, etc.
