My son (Dylan) found out that in a match between a sidewalk and an iPod, the sidewalk always comes out on top.
The repair went great, I replaced the front panel and the display without a hitch, by just following the directions on the site.
Read through the directions without touching your iPod. Go back to the beginning and start the repair when you're sure you understand everything. Work your way through, and take your time. Patience, patience, patience. And as Dad always said... if it don't fit, don't force it, and when all else fails, get a bigger hammer (and a new iPod) :p
