    I got a 3DS XL Zelda Hyrule Edition for $140 on 11.2, can't complain. But the thing is, my top screen has a few scratches, same with the bottom. Overall I'd say its a 7/10 condition wise, the entire unit. I am looking to hide the top scratches maybe with tempered glass? or not waste time and use a hair dryer + puller and swap the top glass, as far as the bottom unit touch screen I can just find one if I am really that picky and replace that.. So anywho... Has anyone done this? Where can I buy just the glass OEM w/ adhesive so it stays fresh :)

    Its not glass that is on the screen. Its plastic. They go for 4ish on ebay. I ordered one from a china store and it is in amazing quality.

    Thanks I managed to find one on Aliexpress as well, figured I'd order a 3 pack. Plenty of times I can screw up

    Yeah that too. I almost went with those but just went with ebay. It feels like glass but not. Also really easy to replace. I would also recommend xtremeguard shields once you put the replacement on. Good luck!
