Default Nexus 5 Red Housing

Did any of the xda members see the red housing on sale online?
I tried but could not find it anywhere.
Need to convert my white N5 to red

Maybe just put a dbrand back on for now until they become available? But doesn't the back need to be taken apart pretty carefully? Meaning taking into account the adhesives and screws because LG made the battery not removable? I know you are looking to replace the back, but that also houses the antenna's and other things. If you do, please post and do a write up or how-to!

red dbrand is an option but i prefer not to use skins
AFAIK the aftermarket housing will come with those antennas. Once I get hold of a red housing i'll definitely post a how to.

else, the final option will be this

Sadly not yet. I've been searching eBay daily for one and nothing. I order a red official case though. Might just settle with that.
