How do I stick the front assembly after replacing it?

I will be following this guide to fix my iPad Air's broken screen.

However, the guide is limited to replacing the assembly only. Is there any step by step guide to stick the front panel back to iPad?

Want to follow the right guide.. Help :-)

Also, what quality screen / glass iFixit provides? Is it as good as original (Gorilla?)

Hmm. Not sure if I have a guide handy. Make sure you do a very good job of scraping the old adhesive off, then apply the new adhesive, then firmly press the new digitizer on. It doesn't need a crazy amount of pressure. But it does need some. To help the adhesion

Thanks for the answer. What quality does ifixit glass has? I have already ordered it but curious to know about it. :-)

It's high quality. On the off chance that you have an issue with their parts. You can probably exchange it

If you want to make your life easier, search bowler tech adhesive online. They sell a high quality adhesvive that is precut for the iPad you are repairing, and the adhesive is make to stick on the frame. The adhesive kits cost about $6 but worth every penny, never had a iPad screen lift up, using this product, but you must remove all the old adhesive. If you brought a screen from Ifixit you shouldn't have any issues. I use high quality screens but always use kepton tape on the edges just to keep that ghost touching away...

Thanks for an answer, so iFixit's iPad Air front panel assembly comes with adhesive right?

I always remove the adhesvive that comes with the screens. I do this because that adhesive that comes with the screen is very cheap and doesn't hold down the screen well enough. The adhesive from bowler tech will hold down the screen and prevent the screen from lifting.

The quality of fixit iPad Air is excellent, they have the cooper trim bezel which the cheap ones have the silver trim bezel. The adhesive that is also pre-installed is good, I also use bowler tech which they send you sample kit if you request on there website. I use bowler tech if I buy the screen with-out adhesive installed. Just make sure you clean the old adhesive off before placing he new screen.
