Default Carbon fiber on a XFX Radeon 295x2 Graphics card

Just wanted to share a quick idea I had for those who are into aesthetics.
All you is a very sharp box cutter and carbon fiber vinyl. I simply unattached the black plastic frame on the card and stuck a sheet of carbon fiber vinyl over it, while cutting off any excess vinyl. then I turned the frame over and used the box cutter to cut off the vinyl around the edges of each hole/engraving. then I flipped it over and pushed out any remaining vinyl scraps. just make sure to have a very sharp box cutter and press the box cutter hard against the edges of the frame that you're sticking it to. Hope it gives you some cool ideas to unleash your creativity on your parts...

That looks pretty nice. If my 980s don't sell I'm just going to use those backplates on my Titan X cards.
