XBOX 360 presented with the Red Ring of Death three years ago. I did not know what to do with it until I found your website recently.
Following your guide and using the repair kit was simple. It was easier than using other guides for other sites.
After completing the guide the XBOX still had the RROD until I ran the XBOX for a few minutes and restarted it. I assume the thermal paste was still being bedded in somehow.
The XBOX 360 did not need solder reflowing to fix it.
I definitely suggest that a small amount of the thermal paste remover should be included with the pack, if not then buy the remover. I purchased the remove just in case, however I do not think I could have completed the project without it.
It might also be useful to offer the package without tools, as I already had most of these (apart from the opener and spudger).

It went well. We bought the pad because we had ruined a couple of iPods by not having one,

Could not use CD/DVD-slot. AND... the SD-card.... ;-(
The repair went fine, using the iFixit-guide for replacing the DVD-drive.
Re-mounting the display-cable was the biggest chalenge. Why on earth do they use such a small and fragile connector at that place; plenty of space there!
The heavy-duty suction cups do not suc very good, because the hole in the piston for the axes of the lever is just a little too far from the suctionpad. I placed a 9mm washer over the piston under the lever and now it sucs! Well!

Power lock button didn't work any more.
GREAT! Had to back up/undo the reassembly part way through for I forgot to install the position sensor. After that all went well.
Wish y'all would put the reassembly steps in the guide step by step for better flow of the project.
This is a very tedious fix, should only be attempted by persons with patients and an eye to details.
Sorry no picture the IPhone is my only camera

I was unhappy working on an old towel, laying screws and parts willy-nilly. I also needed to add more HD space into the machine in anticipation of lots of graphics work. With the right tools and materials, I went about this job.
Piece of cake - and really safe - parts in the right places.
I bought the Wooden-Box-Toolset. The only slight difficulty I had was removing and reassigning the silver bracket that holds the optical drive in the near to the camera-cable and the SATA connector. The collar on the all-in-one screw driver was too big and the driver had to go in at a slant. Removing the end-piece and connecting the bit to the driver body made it a tad short, for me. I had a slim screwdriver for those 2 small screws... a minor difficulty with laptop work.... otherwise, nice hardware!

My DVD drive was busted. In order to use TurboTax, I had to upgrade to Snow Leopard or higher Mac OSX. In order to upgrade, I had to use a DVD. Therein was the problem.
It went very well! The instructions were clear and accurate. I am impressed with your site and will surely recommend it to others and use it again.
