+@macdoktor - '''Stick with the tapes! Work on your process as that is the key!'''
I go through a process of cleaning the surfaces making sure they are spotless and have no residues which can interfere with the adhesion.
* I use a plastic razor to scrape off the metal edge and carefully the glass (not damaging the black tape) I then use a strip of paper towel dampened in Goo Off over the edge of the razor to spot clean any areas that need a bit more.
* I use reagent grade 95% isopropyl alcohol as the cheap stuff has junk in it which will mess you up going over the surfaces to remove anything else thats on them using a few surfaces of the towel so I'm not moving the oils and dirt but fully removing.
* I warm the case making sure its not cool to the touch (warm not hot), Apply the tapes use a burnishing tool to press the tapes down.
* I then warm the display (edge only) again just enough to pull the chill out (too much can damage the LCD).
* Test the system one more time before taking the tape covers off!
* I then use a J roller to press the displays edge down into the case as well as a heat gun at a low setting to warm the glass and case one more time as well. Press evenly on the glass don’t press the corners as you can crack the glass.
Make sure you get the tapes from a source which rotates its stock and come in a sealed package as the air will dry-out the adhesive over time (about a year is as long as I dare to hold them).
'''Tools:'''
* Variable temp heat gun (a hair dryer will also work but be careful), I’ve also experimented with a small IR heat lamp but it can be a bit much (remember we want warm not hot)
* Small J roller
* Burnishing tool or other smooth rounded tool
'''Sundries:'''
* Goo Off
* Reagent grade 95% isopropyl alcohol
* Plastic Razors
* Paper towels or lint free wipes
