Unhappy Metal Replacement Bezels?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know if there might be any sort of metal replacement bezels (eg made of aluminum, stainless steel, etc) that might be able to cover the entire 8100? I'm already missing the fake chrome thingy surrounding the trackball, the battery release is gone and hence, battery cover is missing (all disappeared) so at this point, only "original" bezel I have left is the main one + side bezels (lol).

So if anyone might know if there's one floating around it'd be greatly appreciated if I could find one. Also, if there isn't one around, I have a friend who's a great fabricator, so is it possible to get the EXACT dimensions of every bezel associated with the 8100 (within 2mm of clearance) and I can see if he's willing to mass produce a few to make it cheaper...if anyone knows of something please let me know via this thread or a PM. Thanks a lot for reading this!

Are you talking about a case for the Pearl? You say bezel but use it in different contexts in your post.

I mean the case that currently encases the mainboard. Sorry for confusion.

The best and easiest would be to purchase new parts from Horizon in my signature. Very good service and also a member of the forum.
