    Just wondering because I'm gearing up to do it myself. My GNex has suffered some dings and scratches and a new housing would freshen it up. The display is in perfect condition.

    I've found a site that sells the housing with antennas pre-installed and there is a YouTube video showing how to go about it. Has anyone done it? Was it difficult or are there any pit falls to avoid? I replaced the housing on my Thunderbolt without much difficulty, so I'm thinking this can't be much harder.

    Taking apart the phone is really easy. Once you remove the screws you just unlatch the 3 clips holding the screen and housing together with a guitar pick or something and you will have the housing off.

    Curious, does this site have the white colored housing?

    Thanks for the response. I haven't seen a white housing for the Verizon model, but I wasn't looking for it when I poked around. I'm probably going with the standard housing. I believe you can track one down for the GSM version, but I'm not sure it would fit.

    Yeah, DL was swapping the housings on a GSM version. The sim cards are in different places. However, if anyone does find a white housing for the Verizon model, kindly note it here.

    No reply. Now that the Nexus 5 is out... I really want a white GNex.

    TCM cases with hard backs and wrap around bezel fronts completely transform every surface but the front of the phone. Plus you don't have to use the back making battery change easier than a snap.
