DIY carbon fiber skin for Nexus One


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.
