Hey Jordan, when reassembling the front cover (which in my case, a GP63 Leopard 8RE, is glued at the bottom) what type of glue should be used? Thanks

Hi Jaime, two part expoxy (Alraldite) glue should work, otherwise 3M double-sided adhesive tape would work as well.

Hi Jordan,

If the screen is damaged due to the cover itself being bent, do you have any advice?

Thanks
