  1. That is very cool! I can’t wait to order a few of these for other projects.

  2. Rolf Blijleven

    Excellent work, but may I suggest a contrasting background for images with the white shell?

  3. @rolf – the additional photos are on different backgrounds, that said – we’ll likely take more photos, this case likes to be photo’d!

  4. What buttons do you recommend using with the button pads and a proto-shield?
