k5 custom skins?

So I came across this on ebay today and was wondering if anyone has seen anything similar for the k5? The seller has several options for several cameras, but the k5 is not of them.

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

I am surprised no one else has thought of this yet. You can buy skins for your phones, laptops, mp3, etc. so why not your camera?

I am sure some people will think its a stupid idea, but from the looks of those pictures, they look pretty sleek. Has anyone seen anything like this available for the k5?

Weather sealed cameras usually don't come apart in a way that would make this possible. I would like to see some options for a different grip. The K-5 Silver had a better grip on it than the regular K-5 and it would be nice if that was an interchangeable accessory.

K5 Silver-Grip

In Germany you could send in your black (normal) K5 to the official Pentax Service Partner. For 60,- they will change the normal Grip into K5 Silver Grip.

I'm not, at least for that design.

Seeing as these are stickers I dont think the weather sealing much matters. These are simply for cosmetic purposes and just stick on over the body. Honestly, though, the quality of these would probably be a problem. They would probably start to peel pretty quickly. I sure think they look sweet though!

Good to know. I will have to look into that option here in the states.
