Usually found on custom cars and sporting goods, the carbon fiber look is easily achieved with adequate funds and plenty of time. For about $8 XDA member My_Name_Is_Neo wrapped a Nexus One in a custom carbon fiber skin. [via XDA Developers]

So i got this idea from one guy who put the 3M carbon fiber skin on EVO, But the problem was the curvy shape of my beloved Nexus. So I tried a few things and wasted some Vinyl but finally i bought Best skins ever skin for $8 and used it as a stencil and cut out the vinyl with my xacto.

    This guy didn’t make a carbon fiber skin. He made a skin out of a vinyl picture of carbon fiber.
