I actually "cheated" - the "etching" is privacy window film from Home Depot! it sticks to the window, you can just peel it off lol
I am going to add an XFX so I will take pics and show how it works.

Nothing beats free ๐Ÿ˜„ I actually have had good luck with TT gear, they have treated me very well.

I think your "cheated" Method is great, I will have to try that with my current case just for fun ๐Ÿ˜„

Keep up the great work

Yeah.. I tried taping a window and using a green scuff pad to "etch" itโ€ฆ it just didnt look good... so I started poking around home depot and spotted that stuff... its perfect. Just draw the shape on the back paper .. cut it out.. stick it on! lol ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you have a link to the product ?

Thanks

Damn thats good thinking.ย  In the pictures it looks like 100% 'real' glass etching!

i know ๐Ÿ™‚ - and truly it looks great in person, much better than "scuffing". I think the only way it would look as good is to actually have it etched (like sandblasted)

butโ€ฆ this is better because you can change it ๐Ÿ™‚
