Lightbulb [Q] black Nexus 5 with white batterydoor

Hi.

I have a nexus 5 in black and want to change my batterydoor in a white one.
I want to have a non-glossy white nexus 5

Did anyone do this before?
Are there any problems?

Where should i buy a white batterydoor?

I've seen backcovers on ebay for nex 5, try searching there, costs around $30 I guess.
