The dock I would only use a small amount of the fluid on the main piece and just stick on all the small pieces, it's easy and nothing wants to peel itself back.

I don't plan on using the screen protector, don't like the feel of it and I prefer anti-glare. I used a similar one on my Xoom and it took almost a week for the streaks to clear and even then it didn't look very good. I also read another review that said the screen protector will stick to the skin on the dock and cause bubbles to form. The anti-glare screen protector I use isn't sticky at all and I don't have this issue (Poetic anti-glare screen protectors - 3 pack, $14.95 on Amazon)

Will give covering the dock a try sometime tomorrow. As for the screen protector, I am not a fan of anti-glare ones. They make the screen look grainy and degrades picture quality (atleast that's what I experienced when I used them on Prime). Is that still the case?

It is a bit grainy looking, but I use this tablet outside a lot and it also makes any fingerprints much much less noticeable.

I have been using clear full body Skinomi Techskin on my iPhone 4S I bought as soon as it became available.

It is a great skin, and it definitely helps against drops (although you should go for a case if dropping is your main concern). The screen will less likely be damaged because even though it does not absorb shock it does strengthen the glass by a bit. And with this, you know that there will be no scratches.

One downside of it is that the adhesive is a bit weaker than some other films I've used. It starts to feel after a few months of use. You can, however, request lifetime warranty replacement for $2.95 (shipping charge) using a fax. They send the replacement very quickly, and I've done this twice so far.

Any bubbles that form under the film will disappear within a few days. Liquid bubbles disappear more quickly, so using a lot of liquid is fine as long as it does not damage the device. Unless there is a huge bubble, you don't need to try to hard to get rid of them.

So I finally finished installing the brushed steel skin. I love the quality and fitment. There are some small pieces what could have been a little bigger to cover some for keyboard parts but overall its awesome. I also like the texture which makes it feel like it is actual brushed steel.

One suggestion for people who are planning to do this install, when installing pieces on the corners or smaller pieces, use hair drier on low setting to warm up the skin and the are and it will help a lot in skin sticking correctly.

P.S: Attached are some pics of T700 and the dock (TF201 dock).

Looks like a great product but my infinity has gotten heat issues a bunch of time before even with the aluminum backing. I'm afraid if I get this, the heat issues will get worse.

I'm not having any heat issues with mine, you may have a problem with yours... I wouldn't worry about the skin making any heat worse though.
