    Skin for both tablet and dock, please help me find

    I am looking for carbon fiber skin for both tablet and dock that have other colors beside black. Skinomi only has black and silver. I've found Phantom Skinz Chromatics for Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime- Colored Protection Film, Cases, Covers but it's only got skin for the tablet. I need both tablet and dock. Please help me find these.

    Thank you.

    For some unfathomable reason, they won't supply a skin for the bottom of the dock.

    Aside from the docking hinge area [ and the little rubber feet ] my TF101 seems to have very similar dimensions with the dock. Perhaps getting two skins and modifying one might work.

    That's odd-- their pictures of the TF101 appear to have all the major pieces-- the back, the top of the kb dock, it's hinge area, the faceplate surround. I thought there was a bottom-of-the-dock too, but maybe not? I must look closer...

    ... for the TF101's the dock's bottom is decidedly curved, with cutesy little rubber feets-- you'd have to punch around those (or trim around with a razor). And you'd have to figure out some way to fit the curves, too-- perhaps trimming for an overlap, then remove the overlap? Some very careful razor-knife work, for sure. I wonder if heat-forming would work here... but I'm really not willing to experiment either....

    ... ahh well, it was a nice thought while it lasted.

    I may just get some quality masking tape, some acetone, and some quality automotive lacquer ... in a spray can, of course. Masking off the bits I don't want painted is simple enough-- again, a razor knife and careful trimming so as to avoid all scratches.

    Let's see: the bottom feets, the little rubber bumpers on the top of the keyboard, the keys of course, the touchpad, the screen, the various holes-in, and the finicky little volume and power buttons. Then a careful wipe with acetone-- apply the 'tone to a soft lintless cloth, and wipe gently to remove all traces of oils & contaminants.

    Then a light buffing with super-fine steel wool (wearing gloves, to avoid fingerprint contamination). Finally several light coats of automotive paint-- buffing lightly between each, with an optional final finish of clear.

    The results can be ... spectacular. I've done it with PC cases in the past.

    Upon third thought, disassembling the thing would make this project all the more easier (and safer). Another project for August, when my warranty is up.

    I'm thinking... hot-rod red. Maybe with some hotrod flames?

    Went with Skinomi Carbon Fiber. Hard to install so they replaced it free twice but it's awesome. I don't use the screen protector because of the lag but when they replaced my bad installs, I got a whole new kit.

    They had aluminum, carbon fiber (darker color) and one that looks like wood-cool.
    It fits perfectly, they even made tiny strips that cover the sides and when I say they fit perfectly, I'm serious. They go just up to an opening like the USB or the power on button on the tablet.

    You can buy tablet only or case and tablet. I've had mine on for 7 months and it's NEVER come loose or peeled up. Used them for Android phone and Blackberry & like the fact they'll replace your mistake. And I make lots of mistakes-lol.
