    I was actually considering buying this for the back of my Hi13. Hmmm DIY…The little hole for the camera looks like a challenge but nothing a Stanley knife and precision can’t handle.

    <span style=”font-size: 16px;”>The carbon foil looks nice but it’s not my style, but if you’re gonna go for it best of luck! And show us photos of it! :)</span>

    I just finished putting a carbon fiber vinyl I got from the local $1 store (Japan), it’s not perfect… but not bad if I may say.

    I’ll be posting pictures tomorrow 😉

    Here are some shots of my attempt to style up my Chuwi Hi13…

    I got a couple of Carbon Fiber Vinyl from a local $1 store (total for the wrap $2!) I also used a cutter and scissors for the cutting job.

    I also used my wive’s Hair Blower to soften the vinyl on the edges and corners, but unfortunately I missed up on my cutting. So the cuts around the dock pins are crooked and in some places you can still see silver lines from the metal aluminum body. 🙁 sigh…

    Good news is that the vinyl didn’t affect the magnets on the bottom and side of the Hi13, so the stylus still sticks to it well!

    It turned out way better than my Chuwi Hi12 job! It was so ugly, I just took it off! The curves on the Hi12 don’t help either!

    thx, Hananias, good picture, great effort. And looks good enough to protect the aluminium body.

    I will try to make similar stuff when receiving my part, ^_^

    Thanks!

    Yea I’m confident that it is protecting the aluminum body pretty good.

    The added grip is a big BONUS! The tablet is easier to grip now! 🙂

    I forgot the size of the sheets of vinyl, but I got 2 of them. I apply them from the center out (so there’s a line on the center).

    They cost $1 each! LOL

    I got them from a $1 store call in Japan called “Seria”.

    Hey Hananias, could you post your results on the Chuwi forum under Chuwi hi13,  “Chuwi essentials”? More people could see it and try it too.
