SSD Upgrade gone mostly wrong, but ended great!

MacBook Air 11" Late 2010 Lower Case Replacement

Easy

Mi Problema

Well, this whole thing started by trying to upgrade the SSD in my MacBook Air 11"(mid-2011). The upgrade kit I received had all the needed tools to do the upgrade. The moment came to do the upgrade and on the last screw to remove the backplate, I used a little bit of extra strength and stripped it. So in an act of desperation I tried to dremel a slot into the stripped screw, in which I did a lot of superficial damage to the MBA's backplate. Dremel and this kind of stuff is totally not mine something I usually do. Anyway, still didn't get the screw out and ended up going to a precision machine shop in which they extracted the screw flawlessly.

Mi Solucion

Well, once the stripped screw was extracted everything, including the SSD upgrade went smoothly. I was extra careful applying torque to remove and replace the remaining screws.

Mi Consejo

Dont do anything like this at the end of the day after a few beers, no matter how "cool" or "badass" the upgrade will make your computer.
