This is more of a hardware question but I recently cracked the glass that covers the rear facing camera so I'm replacing the chassis inside. And I figured since I was popping it open anyway, does anyone know if there is anyway to get a Red colored replacement cover from the red Nexus 5 so I can sorta mod my white Nexus but with a red battery door? Do they even have that available?

Not seen anything yet but that's not to say they won't be available. There's a seller on eBay with the white/black covers so I'd assume they'll end up with the red ones

One thing to note is that you get the official battery cover so that it has the NFC and/or wireless charging receiver in it. Some sellers might have replicas but it might not have the chips built in.

This is the seller on eBay that does the OEM white/black ones:

Might be worth keeping an eye on them
