I use several metal burnishing tools for working on cases. You can move metal with light pressure and rubbing back and forth from the back side. Here's the concept: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burnishing_...)

I use smooth bright metal bars of different diameters and a dental tool with just a round metal ball on the end. It helps if you have some junk drawers with old metal parts.

Go here and down to burnishers: http://www.ifixit.com/Answers/Edit/43924

+ The burnishing is great to make decent repairs and to fit the pieces the way they should, but if one has never done it, I don't think the back of the Touch would be a good place to practice :-) I'd get a new back and save the old one to practice than buy a touch of ebay to be fixed and so on...:-)

Turkey is right. This procedure needs to be practiced. Put a tin on a tin can with both ends cut off and see if you can work it out.
