    I'm having a little trouble taking apart my SP, I've gotten all the way up to it being bare except i cant get the ribbon ro cable thing out, so I can't take the final parts of the shell off so I could finish my custon paintjob. Anyone know what I could do, Im pretty clueless on getting it out. If there is already a topic like this, sorry mods the search ooptions wasnt running for me.

    The part that ribbon cable plugs into has a lockbar, and you can use your fingernail on each end to "push" the bar out. It doesn't come completely out though, only about a few millimeters.

    You can tell what part is the lockbar because it's a different color than the ribbon cable link.
