Default Difference in plastics between 8330 and the others (8300, 8310, and 8320)?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I have an 8330 that someone gave me. The plastics don't quite fit together properly. I'm reading up on shopping sites and I gather the plastics are ever so slightly different.

What's the difference? Any tips on what to look for (or where to look for the best prices)?

oh also, could I get away with just getting one of those "skins" which might hold the whole thing together well enough?

Ha...well the 8330 is ever so slightly different than the 8300, 8310 and 8320 housings. There is a thread somewhere that describes how you can modify the housings to work, i just don't remember where. I don't think you want to use a skin to hold the housing together...that just doesn't seem like a good idea
