for you diy guys out there you can just buy the 3m di-noc tape which is the exact same thing and cut out your own using any design you want and for $20 you can get enough to do a 2-3 phones. i did this for my atrix and it was very easy to do and looked great check out the pics in this thread. the OP in that thread even put it on the front of the phone. its very easy to work with just use a heat gun to get around corners and cut with a small scissors or find a way to make some stencils to get the exact shape. this is what i did, used some masking tape to make the outline then cut it.

I wonder if it's possible to order one without the cutout for the logo...i think it makes the back look cheesy.

I have this particular fetish as well.

How big of a sheet of carbon fiber do I need for a custom installation for the galaxy nexus??

I've scratched the extended battery cover so ... instead of buying a new one I just applied some 3M "carbon fiber like" sticker (for automotive use). This is what came out. In my opinion is better looking than the Ghost one .

Very happy with my GA. One of the best accessories I've purchased for my GNex

Awesome review. Great photos as well.

I stress with GNex covers. It's already a fairly large phone. Anything too bulky makes it feel wrong in my opinion.

This looks pretty good though.

Ghost Armor


Today, I just went to a local mall to talk with the ghost armor reps. And they had the carbon fiber in different colors. I went with the white carbonfiber, but felt the sides didn't feel right. Looked somewhat tacky also because it wasn't a smooth cut all around. It was like stickers taped around the phone...They offered to get me the clear sides instead and will have to go back in a few days. The screen protector is actually cut for the phone and looks clean. It feels smooth with little resistence, and seems like it could take a few beatings. I have some pics enclosed below.

There are higher quality, American made, cheaper options available.

The backing has the 3M logo printed on it if you look at it and i think they laser cut the shapes in Arizona. Where are you getting this information?
