I'm finally getting around to rehabbing my three usable iBooks...and have discovered that somewhere between Indianapolis and Lafayette, I've lost all the exterior torx screws for one of my clamshells. I'm pretty sure I have all the screws for the internals.

So, what I need:

Two long torx for either side of the display bezel
Two short torx for the plastic piece that sits under the handle on the display assembly
Four short torx that go along one side of the battery compartment on the bottom piece
Two long torx for the rear of the bottom piece (go through the hinges of the display assembly)

Screws from white iBooks should be the right size, but I'll be better off getting the correct screws from the start.

WOW, $10 for six screws n

I'm pretty sure I have a complete set of screws from a clamshell, as well as an LCD assembly w/hinges, & maybe a few other misc. parts laying around. If you want them all for $7.00 paypaled (to cover shipping), pm me an address & I'll get them out to ya tomorrow
Personally I find it hilarious that you have the hots for my gramma. Especially seeins how she is 3x your age, and makes your Brittney-Spears-wannabe 30-something wife look like a rag doll who went thru WWIII with a burning stick of dynamite up her a** :)
