    Buy a special paint and make it shine like the Lite.

    Spray-paint it red, and then print out a picture of Invader Zim on self-adhesive sticker paper, cut out the shape, stick it on the DS, and paint over it with high-gloss transparent lacque.
    If all goes smoothly, yu will get a DS-Lite gloss effect, AND HAVE ZIIIM!!! ON YOUR DS.

    (And just to be on the safe side, try it out on one of these first:

    DS replacement shells )

    Like evilreddot said, go with jet black. No doubt it will look cooler than any other color. Oh and try it on a white shell if you do get a replacement shell (as I don't know any other color where it is painted on and not the actual color of the plastic, maybe red is but never figured out..).

    There already is a jet black replacement shell. No need to risk your DS, just order one.

    $1 ! [​IMG]

    Warning, shipping costs: $15 [​IMG]

    Thats on ebay and shipping is $15. Anyone know where I can get one of these that is based in the US and not Hong Kong? I dont have paypal so I cant get that one from ebay.

    Or could someone get one off ebay for me using their paypal account. I'd gladly send u a nice and neat money order. PM me.

    I would have ordered one of every colour, if the shipping weren't three times as much as the whole set [​IMG]

    Unless you are very good at using spray paint, don't paint it...

    Wait, but isn't that graphite black? I don't know but for some reason it doesn't look dark enough and sometimes pictures don't do it cause they look different due to different lighting.

    I hear if you get the shells on eBay from someone named bestbuytechmart or something like that, they're pretty reliable.

    i would suggest that you take a long distance from painting your DS.. if you haven't won "the world championship in DSpainting" 99 times in a row...
