Mucho Gracias for your fabulously chillsville MacBook Pro Retina hinge repair on YouTube! ❤  I’ve been fretting like crazy whenever I Iook at my monitor while holding my keyboard. UGHola. The plastic sleeve started chipping and the tiny exposed wires are freaking me out. Your calming presentation helped me tremendously. (>‿◠)✌
