Yes its possible. Now, they have the backcover for the 3G here, but not the 3Gs. I dont know if they are interchangeable or not, but heres the link to the part: iPhone 3G Rear Case

Here's the installation guide: iPhone 3G Rear Case Replacement

I would contact ifixit and find out if they're interchangeable or not. They'll be able to provide an accurate answer.

Comparing the two repair guides for the 3G and the 3Gs, I'd say that the two back panels are interchangeable.

I think you should be able to use the part and guide that Majesty linked in order to replace your back panel.
