    Hey guys. Iv learked on here for quite some time. Never really had a reason to post. My last phone was a G1 and i bought a real* carbon fiber case for it from Infinity Carbon. Great fit, finish, and customer service. They just released the case for the Droid. Im a big motorcycle/car guy and it fits me perfectly.

    Here are a few pics. Snaps on in 2 seconds and fits great. I highly recommend it. Looks like im going to order a case from them for my new iPad too. :icon_ banana:

    Is there a front too or just the back? How do you get one and what do they cost?

    Its just the back cover. I asked why they didnt make the face plate as i though i saw on there Face book that they made one. It turns out that they did for a short period of time. They piece is very complicated to make. It was pretty pricey for both parts when they made them. The sales rep told me that face plate was just to delicate and expensive to make. Im 100% content with just the rear cover and understand why it would be hard to make. Im a carbon fiber nerd and its on everything i own.

    It was $99. Its by no means cheap and its not for everyone. Most people would buy a cheap'o ebay "Carbon fiber" case for 3 bucks. This is the real deal. If you are a carbon guy like me $99 is pretty reasonable as i just bought a real carbon shift knob for $200....

    I got it off there site Infinity Carbon - Carbon Fiber Parts & Accessories

    SUH-frickin-WEET! I just bought one. Thanks for the heads up.

    I wonder why there is a such a huge gap next to the volume button though. That is odd.

    If i had to guess it to have minimal material for when the screen slides. Its doesn't touch it when it opens, but its close. I had a case from them for my G1 and its similar in design and had more material removed on the sliding side too. Im not 100% sure though. Hey Mike its well work the loot if your into Carbon Fiber.

    I bought one, then I e-mailed them to see about getting another one with a custom logo on the back.

    I'm not a big car guy, so none of the standard custom backs interested me.

    The website said they do custom work.

    I inquired about one with a University of Florida logo on the back, and one with the Pittsburgh Penguins logo.

    SWEET, finally someone that can actually make and deliver a real case... Hayden can you please post a few pics of the 'inside' of the case (the part that rests on/against the phone). Thanks, this looks great (least better than anything CarbonCase has been able to produce).

    Edit:
    Also another ? does this case "clip" on or is it just friction fitted? And is the small whole next to the power button (second mic) open (i.e. not covered). Thanks again.

    For others interested I have been in contact with monCarbon and they are willing to make a run of cases (30+) if they get pre-orders. PM me if you're interested and I'll give you the info.

    Ill get pics up of the inside later tonight. The inside looks as good as the outside. They have clips on the edges. Its stays on very tight just like it should. This is not a home brew case. Like i said im a VERY picky person when it comes to my cars and carbon fiber. My phone case is better quality than anything on my car. Im going to use Infinity Carbon for a few custom parts i need done.

    Maybe were not looking at the same case..... Each to there own. Check out there site Infinity Carbon - Carbon Fiber Parts & Accessories for better pic. Mine give no justice. Carbon fiber is not for everyone. Not to mention there are not mass produced in china. They state each case is hand made in the US. I really like that.

    My best friend bought a MonCarbon case. The quality was poor and was not even clear coated. Had a dull finish in a couple of weeks. It also blocked his phones signal and didn't work most of the time. He took it off and had full service. I told him to buy a Infinity Carbon case. He did being leery of his signal strength. But he has had no issues with it. There are a lot of people who have this same complaint with the MonCarbon case. Infinity Carbon all the way, plus there no need for a group buy. They already make them.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Wow! Somehow I missed this thread yesterday. I'm quite impressed - their website looks good.

    How long did it take to reach you after ordering? Are they stocking these or "made to order"? Any other colors?

    Thanks for posting the pix! :) mikey

    You would be even more impressed with the case. It took about 3-4 days to get to me and free shipping. Its said on there site they were made to order but i got it really fast. So i think they stock them. Wouldnt know why they wouldn't, im sure they sell a lot. As far as "colors" carbon fiber only comes in "black". I did see that they use Hybrid materials (Carbon fiber and Kevlar (colored). So they maybe able to custom make you one. Not sure though.
