Whoah Son, this shit just got real!

First off, the ribbon cable mod, as done here:

The only difference is I glued the rolled ribbon down as pulling on it quite hard made it come loose.

Next, the battery door!!

Here we have a V-hook from Tyger Cheex and an aluminium battery cover from someone who's not a member on these boards anymore.
Image

Countersunk slotted machine screw from local DIY store (B&Q)
Image

Measuring the cover and marking the screws.
Image
Image

Screws cut with a hacksaw.
Image

Battery cover drilled and painted black
Image

Metal expoxy glue for added security (from B&Q)
Image

Smeared on the reverse side and into drilled holes.
Image
Image

Once set, filed flat.
Image

A little wonky but that's what you get with doing things by eye and by hand
Image

And presto!
