replacing shattered front glass

Hi, I am tasked with repairing a model with a totally shattered front glass. It was so bad that the suction cups would not work, I ended up having to chip it off one small piece at a time. Scraping/chipping the glass shards/glass dust from the edges was the worst. The good news is that it is done and the LCD looks good.

My question: As long as the edges are cleaned of excess adhesive and the LCD is ok, is the replacement glass offered from the iFixit store all that I need to complete the repair? I see that the adhesive is included, any trick to the application? Thanks in advance.

I would run through the guide at least three times before starting. Make sure the inside of the glass is clean and the camera is ready to attach. This is not an easy job and you will need uninterrupted time to do it. MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2010 Front Display Glass Replacement

I agree, although most of the work is already done. All that I need to do at this point is put the new glass on. I rad the instructions, but didn't see much regarding actually putting the new glass in place.
