    It feels just like it looks, it has a texture to it. I actually like the way it feels in my hand. I used to have the clear ghost armor on it before this. I used the actual Ghost armor as a template to cut this out. Its the same thickness as the ghost armor.

    This material is almost ***** proof. Its easier that any screen protector to apply. No water involved. Its pretty much like sticking on a sticker. If you get it wrong, just rip it of and readjust then stick it again. If you crease or wrinkle it you can apply heat and the wrinkles come right out. May need some heat for contouring the corners and then a razor for trimming excess.I will do a full write up later.
    I used almost excactly the amount you see for the size of the phone. Trimmed off maybe an 1/8th of an inch off of excess. I had a 12x12 piece left and i could probably do ten more phones easy with alot left over. There are videos out there showing the application process that can be googled.
    Take the battery cover off while doing it to make it easier to cut. I used my old ghost armour for a cutting template for positioning of the cutouts for logo, camera, and speaker.

    That is freakin' soweeeet!

    Don't have my Pre yet (waiting for 755p contract to end mid-June to see if 2nd-gen Pre will be out by then), but this product is definately going on my list of must-haves.

    OK...that's just plain RAD!!!! Sounds like you need to figure out how to go into production and set up shipping pre cut ones out.

    Very Nice! You might want to consider making a little money off of this. Many people aren't very skilled with an ex-acto knife.

    Now I have carbon fiber on the brain. Thanks!!!. It does look really cool and unique.

    Yea, that looks great. I'm thinking you could make some money off this. You could either sell precut material or already customized battery doors.

    Please be sure to post some instructions when you have time. I'm ordering the material now! do you recomend using the primer the site talks about? Can you smooth out the corners without it?

    I would assume that the Touchstone with still work with the carbon fiber backing. Am I correct in this assumption

    Please excuse my ignorance. I'm not at all knowledgeable about Carbon Fiber and what it is exactly made out of and the such.
