    Default Looking for a good GBC screen lens replacement

    I'm looking for a new screen lens for my GBC, which is a bit scuffed up. It seems like most of the replacements floating around ebay and Amazon are soft, easily scratched, ill-fitting pieces of shit. Anybody know of a good quality replacement? Maybe some leftover stock from Nintendo repair centers?

    I would imagine any official stock is long gone. Even Nintendo's online store basically says check eBay.

    Nintendo's online store did sell official replacements directly to customers several years back and they were cheap back then too, so you'd think there's gotta be some unused official ones out there somewhere, if not from the repair centers then just with ordinary collectors. I know I bought at least one way back when, but I think I used them all up (still have an unused original model GBA screen and a GameCube lid plate; why I bought the latter, I have no idea).
