    Just thought I would post on here about my project.. Its taken me 3 weeks using a caliper but I finally was able to make a proper door. Tons of suggestions from XDA members..

    Anyway, I am finally doing pre-orders. I also plan on sending a few samples to the admin of this site to hopefully do a review.. During the pre-order phase I am doing free shipping and even offering multi door discounts starting at 2 doors..

    Just trying to give back to the community..

    Please check http://www.customevos.com

    thanks

    I'm curious about the construction of these.
    Are they cast resin, or what?

    I followed this project loosely, amazing work.

    I'm strongly considering a clear one to show off the induction charger :)

    I'm really not into showing the red off at all, but this clear battery door is awesome!

    I can't decide which one I want lol!

    I like the clear, but I think a red backing would be pretty sweet, or yellow.

    EDIT: Any pictures of the colored cases? Will they be plain, no htc logo?

    I ordered 2 clear doors. What a great price! I haven't found any battery doors online, let alone a clear one. :D

    Joe has put a ton of work into these and it shows. People who order are not only getting a great product but will be helping to support the efforts of a fellow member.

    Wow...this looks really cool. When do you expect to have some pictures of the colored doors up?

    I don't know how feasible it is, but I have a suggestion that might help you get even more sales on these replacement doors.

    The case-mate cases have a raised lip that comes up to cover the camera lens. If somehow, you can make a new mold with a raised lip that'll protect the camera lens, I'm sure you'll get a TON of people interested in those.

    I know I would be. This way, even though I have a protective film on my camera lens, I could use my phone without a case and not worry about the lens getting cracked. Just a suggestion.

    The Barely There the only EVO case Case-Mate has on its website, and it appears to have a little "lip" around the camera.

    Could be done easily.. I wish I had a better close up of the case though..

    Anyone have a higher resolution image?

    thanks

    Tried looking through the different case threads that have been started to see if anyone posted pics, but unfortunately couldn't find any.

    If that's something that could be done easily, I'd definitely be interested and even better if you could offer different colors. Granted, the lens protector I have on right now is working fine, It'd be better (IMO) if I just didn't have to worry about it at all w/ the battery door having a protective shell over the camera lens.

    Well, it seems with too many pre-orders changing the design cant happen.. some that pre-ordered were not happy with the change.

    Sorry..

    The rails and other piece do protect the camera though

    No, not at this time. TBH, we need to sell a lot more before we can even get this one preordered

    thanks

    What will you do with people who have ordered and paid if you don't get enough pre-orders to go through with it?

    Edit: I did order two.
