View Full Version : replacement shell case for DS Lite?

07-19-2007, 09:35 AM
who has replaced the shell case for their DS Lite and how did it turn out?

Im thinking about getting a SHOCK case, but I heard the hinges get cracked on them as well.

Can anybody recommend a different shell case other than SHOCK? Or is SHOCK the only one?

They are REALLY bad. Poor quality, easily scratched, and much easier to brake than the original cases. Also uglier, just different colors. Trust me, those pictures make em look better than they are. There's also the chance that you will break your DS in the middle of doing it, or you make it easier to brake. Mine was modded fine, but it apparently because really easy to break because after a 1ft drop onto my BED, the DS bottom screen stopped working permanently. I don't think that's supposed to happen.

Shock is unfortunately the only manufacturer of replacement cases.

I think im going to get a shock case, either red or the chrome one. So I was wondering is it easy to take about the DS Lite?

Ive seen the instructions to take it apart, http://www.flickr.com/photos/62647765@N00/sets/72157594277451148/

It doesnt look to hard but you never know.

I just wanted to do the same (but with a glosssy apple green/purple conbinaison) : )

But yeah, that expensive.

thats exactly what i meant, i glossy bright green, it would look very nice, i was thinking is that any color from the old gameboy colors would look nice painted glossy on the ds lite.

ps> i think what gives it the glossy look is the plastic clear shell, because when i took it off the black was glossy with the plastic but flat dull without it.
