Not quite perfect

So there are 3 main problems with this shell unfortunately

1. It comes with its own screws, just like other prestige shells, but the two inner middle screws on the back of the shell don’t actually reach the front shell. The pocket requires longer screws for these 2 posts and the ones included are too short. You’ll need to use your OEM screws for those 2 since they’re longer.

2. When cutting the tabs to fit an IPS screen, you’ll still have to do some extra trimming/sanding to the residual plastic from the tabs, otherwise your screen won’t lay flat.

3. The screen looked perfectly lined up when I put it together, but when I placed the lens, the left and top side of the shell show a bit through the edge of the lens. (This COULD be a lens issue though, but I don’t have a diff lens to test)

Otherwise, the shell feels and looks great!
