    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    This is a great replacement housing, with all parts and screws included, even enough to not need any tri-wing when you're done.

    The black is dark enough that you're not distracted looking at the traces on the boards, but you can still see inside clearly.

    Cons:

    No instructions are included, but with some critical thinking, you can figure this out.

    I used a photo tutorial from http://www.flickr.com/photos/62647765@N00/239191893/in/set-72157594277451148/

    OtherThoughts:

    If you're going to do this mod, I HIGHLY recommend that you also get http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.3259

    As there's a good chance you'll crack the digitizer/touch sensor screen while replacing that rectangle on the lower screen. I did due to some inordinately strong adhesive placed on it.

    Don't forget a tri-wing screwdriver and a good-sized workstation with excellent lighting.

    Bottomline:

    Be prepared for what you're doing, and this is a GREAT way to catch attention with your console. I've uploaded some shots of the finished thing, and if that doesn't make you want to do this, you have no love of style.
