Fixing things is something I like to do. In the past, my dad had me helping a family friend fix TVs. It helped me feel comfortable with electronic components. I've also put together PCs in the past.
I've been a member of this site for 6 years now but only recently contributed to it. I shared my comments and pictures of my MacbookPro6,2 being fixed by me. I would encourage people to fix their MBP6,2 rather than have it as an expensive paper-weight.
I would be more than happy to share my experience and the resources I used to fix my MBP6,2.
