Game Boy Advance SP Shell Insert

Very good product

Good Enough

Overall I'm pretty pleased with the product. The insert fits nicely in both FUNNYPLAYING and Cloud Gaming screens (although, due to the nature of the CGS screens, one side will be raised.)

A warning, however, because the insert is not quite big enough to cover the entirety of the back of an IPS-compatible screen, so if you have foam back there or something it'll stick out the side slightly. Not a complete deal breaker, but might be if you care a lot about uniformity. Probably fits perfectly on a non-IPS shell.

Solved the problem

I got through shell swapping to a clear shell, and I didn't foresee the cheap white foam of the screen replacement to be such an eye sore. This cleaned it right up, looks great!

Shell fit great!

The fit was nice and only required a small amount of trimming for the mod I was doing. Will buy again

Nice finishing touch

This little plastic insert fits perfectly and adds a splash of color to the transparent SP shells.
