    Just now (or 12/04/2012 about 9pm) I managed to fix my cluster with the chrome rings. Sorry still cant post photos from flickr don't know why?
    But I must thank Haywire who guided the group DIY session. I did my own after observing his live guide. MANY THANKS BRO! you rock the DIY world. My next item is the MID.

    100% pixel in 1 try. There was only 3 vertical lines left before I fixed it. Now fully confident to fix it for you guys.

    Hi Bro Haywire,

    This is how my MID looks like at current, the S(T) indicating stereo sometime gone half missing. Since I bought the ribbon, might a swell fix it. See you at 6pm today?

    So it's close to a month now since the ribbon cable repair was done. When I reached home today, I notice about half a line went missing.

    It's the MID that has some missing pixels.

    I didn't get the cluster one done.

    I'll see you again, its the pressure bar not putting enough pressure. Yours was the first MID I fixed so I know more now.
