How to apply BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber for iPhone 4 [sponsored]

The BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber for iPhone 4 is a skin that sticks to the glass black and stainless steel antenna to change up the look and protect from scrapes and abrasions. They're not the same as the thin, clear BodyGuardz films we've shown you how to apply before, and are actually even easier to apply.

The BodyGuardz Carbon Fiber for iPhone 4 is available from the TiPb iPhone 4 Accessory Store. Check out the video above and follow on for the how-to after the break!

Here's how I apply the BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber for iPhone 4

  1. Clean my iPhone 4 screen thoroughly (I use iKlenz)
  2. Peel off the back sticker carefully and lightly line it up on the iPhone.
  3. Place the edge down, keeping a close eye on the alignment.
  4. Push evenly and steadily out from the edge -- I use a card to help
  5. Check alignment and peel back and reposition as/if needed.
  6. Smooth down to secure it in place.

I'll be testing BodyGuardz Armor out for durability and report back in a review. If you have any tips for applying them, or any questions about them, let me know in comments.

Is it smooth or textured? I have a Rivet glued to a Zagg Invisible shield on the back of my iPhone, and I might try this when that wears out if it is smooth so the Rivet can stick.

Why can't apple just develop a great phone without the need for us then to spend all our time hiding/protecting/incasing the thing. I love my iPhone 4 its just a shame I never get to see it.

I have the Zagg Invisible Shield full body with the side pieces. I like it because it's clear and I don't need a case. I have not ever had an issue with "death grip".

Dont get that priduct!! If it gets just a little heat it shrinks and leave ugly sticky glue residue. Summer is around, guess what eill happen then!
Looks nice and feels bice when new and about mo 1/2, but then start to shrink.

I would use them as a way to connect, help people, socialize, find jobs and of course advertise the website. I think this is a great idea!
