That came out awesome man I want to do this to my extended back cover. Did you use a heat gun for the edges and molding for the camera etc?

The bumper case I have works but the fitment is pretty bad. I have the aluminum one with the black rubber power/volume buttons.

Otherwise it's hottest. Lol

No, it's the ebay special. Lol there are usually three common types.
1. Bumper with cutouts and slight indentations on the sides
2. Bumper with indentations and metal buttons on the sides
3. Bumper with black rubber buttons on the sides.

While there are a few other variations the three mentioned above are the most common types. The problem is that the side walls extend over too much and while the extended battery and phone fit, it will be a really tight fit.

I recently came across a case with markings from a company called Zomgo. It is a metal bumper case but the side walls do not extend far enough to be an issue. I'm pretty sure the sweet armor is close too if not the same. I found one and ordered it recently so I'll know better soon.

Check this post for pics of the two cases that should work fine with the extended battery case.

The case in this post is the one I have but in gold. This is the case you should avoid is you are going with the Anker extended battery.

Just got my Zomgo bumper case and it fits just right. It's a little tight but it's much better than my EBAY special. Pics below...
Here are some pics to show my setup which works great. MIME SP, ZOMGO gunmetal bumper, Anker battery, Gunmetal Carbon Fiber Look 3M Vinyl, Spiegen Home button.
Sorry for the huge pictures...
