    Anyone come across anywhere selling non-Nokia removable back covers for the Lumia 1320? Not cases, but the actual battery covers. I'm after a green one, a colour Nokia doesn't do.

    Okay this might or might not help. But here you go:
    Step 1: Get a white lumia 1320 battery door or back cover from eBay about $10 or slightly less
    Step 2: Color it to the green shade that you like. Here is a URL to help you through the process. This particular individual dyed the cover yellow but I think the instructions will work for you as well. Please post back your results if you undertake this project. Good luck.

    It called rit dipping.
    Its special "paint" for clothing.
    You can buy it in powder and in liquid form, doesnt matter both are good.
    Just boil some water, trow in the rit, stirring with a kitchen spoon, let it cool down around 70 degrees Celsius.
    And then hang the backcover, ( with a thin piece of wire through the hole ) in the hot water.
    Repeat this action in a couple of steps and under continues survailance.

    Is the water to hot, it will disform your cover, is it to cold the diy wil not penetrate enough.
    You can only work from light to dark.
    So a white one should be perfect for the job
    Its a one way ticket, no return
    And be careful with your clothes and skin.

    Make good preperations, the object should be clean and free of any fingerprints.
    No scratches ( you see every scratch because of the structure of the damaged plastic ).
    Wash the residu as soon as possible from the object ( stains )
    Use something else to try it with til you get the hang of it.

    We used that same trick for RC cars and railroadmodeling.

    That guide is worthless for the 1320 covers. Nothing happend. I wasted so much dye on it, tried everything, but it is still whiter than the wings of an angel! Ah well, white doesn't look bad either.

    Thanks for the info. Will order white too, because Nokia can't do yellow and red.
