What appears to be the most difficult step —Step 7 —has its critical parts skipped over: how to carefully remove the top cover from its glued surfaces without breaking it. What tool is used? Where does one start the process? Are there particularly vulnerable sections where caution should be used to avoid breaking the cover?

Also not included are the instructions for replacing the top cover and making sure it stays in place. If it is re-glued, what type of glue is used?

Other than that, the instructions are clear and beautifully illustrated.
