    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:

    Here's how the front would look:

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

    They also have a flower-pattern:

    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. :)
