Video coming soon!!

After finishing my portable and it being an ugly little piece of awesome, I decided to spruce it up! I added a nice layer of construction paper to give it a single color. Came out good in my opinion!!

I did some more adjustments, the batteries are officially internal! I never have to take them out, I added a charge jack on the bottom! :) I also trimmed up around the screen... looks TONS better now! :D

One technique you will be pleased you did is to remove the existing covering, use it as a template to cut better and more exact holes in, get the cut-out around the screen crisp and apply that piece of thin paper to the case, tightly; folding the corners like you would wrapping an Xmas parcel. That will look better than your pic; although same principle.
