*REDUCED* Iphone 5/5S paint matched TSXCLUB Cases

Whats up Club,

EDIT: I REALLY need these gone to fund some personal situations, so the prices are being dropped quite a bit. I still have Black and Silver left, scroll for new prices!!

Been working on these for a little bit and theyre finally done!

First off i want to start out by saying i remember back at 5th grade graduation i got a certificate calling me the next "Donald Trump" because i came up with some crazy good ideas and i believe with this invention i have fulfilled my destiny haha.

In this post ill be describing the process I took to make these cases and why they are totally worth buying! To start off with, everything you see below has been PROFESSIONALLY done at my dads auto body shop. The paint is perfectly matched with Acura's TSX color codes. Including the Pearl =)

DISCLAIMER: I am not telling you that these cases will be great for protection just because they're a phone covers, they are strictly for looks so you can show off to your friends!

The cases i have available are:
5 Nighthawk Black Pearl
5 Carbon Grey Pearl
4 Premium White Pearl
4 Satin Silver Metallic

Due to the cost of materials and time ill be selling these for $20 shipped to the lower 48 states, and $22 to Canada, Alaska and Hawaii!

The shipping process will be placing a piece of Styrofoam inside the case to avoid bending/breaking, wrapping in bubble wrap and then placed inside the orange enveloped lined with bubble wrap inside!

Now here we go!!

1. I wet sanded the case by hand using 600 grit (no pictures)

2. We primered the case

3. We painted the case, 4 coats of color per case

5. Had them clear coated inside the paint booth over top the decal that way there is no peeling possible, picture is from outside the booth since of course we couldnt go in.
