Whilst scanning ebay for cheap parts and stuff i came across a relly cool lightning effect skin that would go really well with the el string i have around the bottom edge of my box and the cc light i am about to install under my clear jewel

How good do they look once installed ie the edges of the stick on.

Also how har are they to get to stick on or is it a piece of p1ss

I myself have a skin from Designerskins.com. It's quite thick and top quality. I really like it though. It's not that much of a pain in the ass to put on, but you should take your time. Easiest way it to wet the area with soapy water. Like 99 parts water, 1 part dish soap. This just keeps the area moist and the decal from unnecessarily sticking. Plus it's easier to get the air bubbles out. Hope that helps somewhat.

I'm so sick of people jumping on the "skinz are teh suk" bandwagon. Not everybody wants to risk screwing up a case, sanding off paint in small areas like the vents is not very fun. Not everyone can spraypaint good.

Thou shalt not discriminate. Skins are mods to. Be nice to people who can't paint.

I would recommend Decal Girl, not necessarily because they're "better" or whatever, I just got good and quick service from that site.

I'm not a huge fan of skins, but the brushed aluminum and bright silver-aluminum skins are pretty sweet and I got one for my other xbox that has been rebuilt to stock condition for Halo 2 on LIVE.

But really, this is real nice to have a good civilized discussion about skins with minumal bashing. rolleyes.gif

EDITS: for using the word "nice" far too many times!
