    I got a nice deal on a GF1 from the sales forum because there was a small crack near the hot shoe. In order to cover up the crack, I purchased this Metal Skin from Gariz. I mostly left the skin off the front, only on top and back. Not sure if I like it, it's a bit blingy, but then again it does cover up the crack nicely. I may remove the skin on the back. What do you guys think?

    Please excuse the poor quality, it was done quick and dirty.

    Here's the crack:

    I kinda like it. Do you have any pics of the front piece straight on?

    Here's mine with just the skin on the outside of the lens mount, push button and pop-up flash area (it's hard to see).

    Thats kind of cool. I wonder if they have a plain metal finish to imitate the beautiful e-p1. :)
