The instructions are good but you really need to remember where everything goes. (NO INTERRUPTIONS)
For centuries, no man was envied more than Aladdin for his flying woven friend. Though a third wheel and an occasionally crotchety companion, the magic carpet was the perfect chauffeur to facilitate amorous evenings with Arabian princesses. Nevertheless, the risk of being rolled into a mouthwatering rug burrito was unavoidable.
These days, a more low-risk royalty seduction method is available. Change the front panel on an Arabian princess' iPhone 3G with this kit and win her inevitably-sovereign heart while avoiding the perils associated with irascible rugs.
This kit includes adhesive strips, a metal spudger, a plastic spudger, a #00 Phillips Screwdriver, a suction cup, and of course the front panel (touchscreen glass with integrated digitizer).
