    There have been a couple shots of the black carbon fiber skins on black Evos here, some from the stores and some DIY... I just got the Phantom Skinz white carbon fiber design and put it on my white Evo today and thought I'd share.

    Even the Phantom Skinz website doesn't have a picture up of this yet - they show the sample on an iPhone 4, of all things.

    Because it wraps around the sides, only the bezel in the front remains black... I think it's a better look overall than having the half-black, half-white sides.

    Phantom Skinz did a pretty darned good job on the cuts, but some of the side pieces feel a little short. I managed to stretch them a bit and gain some extra coverage by warming the top and bottom strips with a hairdryer and bending those a little more tightly. You can still seen the joins, but that may just be my own installation errors.

    (fuzzy pics, sorry)

    That looks great! Is there a hint of pink in there? Being a dude, I don't really want that;) Other than that, sweet!

    Nope, it's not pink... the angle is funky, but thats the little notch where you lift up the battery cover from. It just barely shows the red inside.

    I did get a little ink spot on it the other day and freaked out because it really stands out on the white - but it came off with a little rub of a damp cloth, thank goodness. So yeah, I'm looking at clear cases now!

    i have to say i am not big on white phones, or white things in general.. lol
    nor am i big on carbon fiber accessories, i work in the auto industry and some people just take it a little too far.

    but this phone does look pretty damn good :) nice job!

    does it interfere with taking your battery cover off? am i right in thinking that the side pieces are separate?

    The side pieces are separate, so no, it does not interfere with taking the cover off easily.
