Hello,

I have a dead switch i picked up 2nd hand and my primary switch that the shell has cracks & scratches and the vent grills on top have all broke off.
so ideally I want to put my good guts in the shell that doesnt look like it survived the apocalypse.

the cracks on the back seems simple enough.
the scratching around sides and the missing vent grills seem like they're going to be an issue.
Trying to find teardowns online, everyone I've seen they only get the motherboard level and leave a lot of little components & the screen behind.
I've also heard the screen is glued in.
Is there an easier way to swap the shell?
is it not worth trying because the screen is hard to remove?

Any advice is appreciated Thanks :)
