Hey guys. The shipping was prompt. It just took a bit of time to get the tools from a friend and some downtime to do it.
For fun and as appreciation, I did a photo sequence for anyone else who is doing the fix for the dead backlight for a 17" MBP.
Total Repair Time: 20 Minutes (including beer consumed).
Thanks again for supplying the parts. With the money I saved I was able to snag a 24" LCD External display and have extra cash left over than if I had let the official repair centre gouge me to fix it...
