wow nice, def want to get one to go with my white case. Is it a screen protector as well or just around the edge? Also does it effect the touch sensitive keys?

Hey this mod looks awesome! I have a quick question -- does putting the front decal cover the light from the touch sensitive buttons, or does it still come through? Also are they still are responsive as before? Thanks!

Nice Job! I was thinking of doing the exact same thing. But didn't know there was a white face cover... Which is also great for covering the excessive logos on the front.

Can you be very descriptive about how you painted the back?
