The cool cats over at iFixit are best known for their gadget teardowns and how-to guides, but they also sell accessories and tools. Their latest is a clear backplate for the iPhone 4. Now, this is a DIY sort of thing and will require the buyer to install the $29.99 piece. But don’t fret! iFixit has excellent guides and instructions so installition should be trivial. Note: this backplate only fits the GSM iPhone. Sorry, Verizon. You can’t have all the fun.
