Start alignment of the application at the camera lense. Lay your phone down on soft surface, so you won't scratch the screen!

You can use credit card or drivers license, di-noc surface is very resilient

OOOH this stuff is nice!

I like the fact you allow up to a 24x24 piece.. but why not 36x36?

There hasn't been any demand for it until now, I will have them look into it :thumb:

nice. how hard is it to get it to look like it came like that?

Very nice stuff. How pliable is the carbon fiber film when heated with a hair dryer?

Mnpctech May 3, 2011 03:48 AM

@_dangtx_, it's very easy.

@dma0991, it's very pliable. You can stretch it too.

I found using a heatgun to make it a little more pliable works wonders for rounded corners.

I have been meaning to do my 360 controller, I guess I will have to add some on my next order.

Thanks again for the vids/tips :thumb:

Very good protection. I think you can stick it on the laptop?
