OK, I got the full body kit today, but I am very skeptical about even attempting to install them. The front and side pieces are ONE big piece. The problem with that is that the screen is ever so slightly recessed and has about 1/8 mm gap around it (for liquid to get into). The back piece has no slits in the corners to stop them from popping up. Has anyone installed the Best Skins Ever on their Moment ? Is it as scary and frustrating as it looks ?

Couldn't figure out how to post photos. Sorry.

I'd recommend that when you're putting the round pieces on, use patience, and hold them in place for like 10 minutes before moving on to next.. Learned that watching the Best Buy people install an invisishield on a Pre. I use the Zagg product on the Moment as well. Good Luck with the BSE (I don't have the patience/steady hands to install those things).. :)

I have used bestskins on my BB's and yes it can be tricky and it does take a little patience, but they do fit good. I am waiting on one for the moment so can't say for sure how well I will do on it but I do like them better than a Zagg and they are cheaper.
imtravis is right tho' when applying around the corners you do have to hold those a little longer to make sure they adhere. I learned from putting them on my BB is that I ordered 2 just incase I do mess up.

Take a look at the photo of the BSE for the back. There are NO slits in the corners like on pretty much every other full body protection. The back is not going to go on as it should. The front being one big piece isn't gonna work either. The entire front is not all flat. Above the send/end and optical trackpad, it drops a bit when the screen begins. Not gonna work. I used BSE on my Curve and it was SIMPLE ! This however, does not look simple !

Well, I will say this, on my BB Curve and Tour both had a "beveled" edge just as the moment does. Now the tiny strips that go around the bottom and sides I probably won't even apply but on the back the one large piece will only go around the battery door of course then it looks as it will slope down to cover the edge but I truly think if it is like the Tour it will adhere smoothly with a little time and patience.
I will post as soon as I get mine and apply it if no one comes forward and replys sooner.

OK, so I finally got brave and did it today. The back and sides went SMOOOTH, but the front is a different story altogether. The edges around the screen have moisture all around them and it was done over 24 hours ago. I think the fact that the front is all one piece is a really bad idea. The recess of the screen is causing the edges not to lay down flush. I am getting worried about the moisture. I have attached a link with a photo showing what I am talking about.

why ?

why would you even try to get a kit and skin it yourself when you can have that 16 year old kid at best buy put ghost armor on it for 20 bucks ?? Are you a glutton for punishment ? that's like washing you own car :). haha.
