Different chunks required different tools, but the majority I got off with the scraper. Then I repeatedly soaked the LCD in the remover stuff and gently wiped it down. I still scratched it pretty bad thanks to the tiny glass shards, but it looks good at night. Got the LCD totally clean, glued the ne...
