I've ordered my new DS Lite shell replacement from DX and the order has shipped. As I plan to leave the black face panels around the screens as-is in my replacement(will be custom colored using 2 kits + existing parts), will it be totally necessary to remove the ribbon cables? Do I even need to detach the top half of the system to remove the outer shell of the lid? I know all the electronic parts in the top half are attached to the face, so it seems trivial to remove the rubber caps, unscrew the outer shell fo the top half and remove that, rather than fiddling with removing the ribbon cable and pulling the top half away. It would also save me hassle of disassembling the hinge.
