Another DIY project completed

Dropped my mp3 player while out biking and shattered the glass touch screen. I found a replacement digitizer for around 15 bucks and with a couple more bucks for tiny torx drivers and super thin double sided tape I was able to get back to good as new condition. It wasn't too hard and internet instructions were pretty thorough. Not much to these little hand held devices once you tear them down.

I bought a set of those tools for DH so he could try to resurrect my iPhone 6. Note to others: do not wash your phone. He dismantled it pretty handily but could not reverse the effects of a full wash cycle.
But he's got the tools for the next time one of our devices needs repair.

Good job on your repair!

Now that you have completed that, here is a new idea for a DIY project.
