Hey People :)

I am modifying my girlfriends 3GS soon and I would just like to say I am bricking it.. Taking apart a 3GS completely when its not mine scares me :/

Anyway I thought I'd share what I'm doing, I am turning it completely pink. Here are the Parts I'm using:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/250863444847?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

So I think it will look pretty cool, If pink is your thing :p

What ya'll think?

Dave, be for warned if you haven't done anything like this before it's not easy. I converted my 3G and put a blue OEM back plate on, it's time consuming and can give you a few head aches. The screen is easy you could swap that out in a matter of minutes. I suggest you buy better tools than the ones supplied.

Thanks for the advice John. I already have good tools I bought for taking apart my laptop. I have a decent magnetic screwdriver and case opener tool. I watched a teardown on YouTube last night and it seemed pretty straight forward. I am quite literally going to pause and play the teardown video the whole time I'm doing the work.

You do know you'll void your warranty. I wouldn't say it's straight forward either... The break down video's are great and definitely a massive help for an inexperienced person.

Inexperienced? John I'm just about ready to open another can of photo war whoopass. I think I should be ok, I'm pretty good with stuff like this. I did a 2 week course on micro electronics so that should help a tad ;)

Oh, and it's not in warranty ;)
I wasn't trying to say you didn't know what you were doing. You said you were bricking it - in my opinion that means inexperience.

The photo war isn't over, I had real life things to do (y)

So, how did it turn out?
