Default LG G2 Metal Case signal Mod?

Does anybody know if there's ways to modify a Metal Case to get normal reception? I had the Idea of buying this case ( http://www.casefanatic.com/samsung-2...01-ultra-thin/ ) and modifying it where the Antennas are so I don't lose signal. Has anybody attempted anything like this? Its a really sexy case. Just want a way to not lose signal.

I guess you would need to see a G2 tear-down to know where the antennas are exactly. If you find one, let me know. I'm curious.

Looking at that teardown and looking online for any information I could find,
You would basically need to remove a good inch from the top and bottom of a metal case to reduce signal loss.

I'd wait for a few months for new cases like this to appear, it's only 3 months since g2 launched

Like this the one i attached, i think it's plastic though

it just appear yesterday, it's a good sign that many other cool cases is coming right
