Done and dusted, if your confident pulling things apart, something you can knock over in 2 hours from start to finish, mine took about 3 as I didn’t seat one of the sticks of RAM properly, luckily I was testing without the screen stick back down so was able to fix (but added another 45 mins to the process).
Guide is really really good for strip down, and not bad to follow for reassemble. Note about the Mic holes bottom of screen just right of centre, need to cut a gap in the adhesive to make way for the holes refer to —> Muffled Microphone - iMac 21.5" (mid 2017) - Following Adhesive Strips

2 notes for reassembly, carful with screws not to strip the heads as they are really really small, make note to cut a gap in the the adhesive over the whole for the microphone.
I managed to strip the head of one of the screws when putting it back in. So be carful with them when putting in / taking out. If you strip it on the way out you will need to take a fine drill and rill it out. Going back in, well as long as you never need to strip it down again not a problem.
The second problem is a real pain, you need to make sure to cut a gap in the adhesive just to the right of Center at the button to allow for the microphone opening. If you don’t, the adhesive tape will stop any real pick up on the Mic, so you just need to cut a small gap in it before putting on the screen. Unfortunately I didn’t find this out (or do my checked before sticking it all back down, so have to pull screen back off and reapply new adhesive with a cut out in it at an other time.
Word of warning, so in the process of removing the power socket, I also pulled the two small cables out of their connector on the PCB. These are the cables in the first photo above just to the left of the circled power socket. These two cables are for the Hard Rest button on the back of the Time Capsule. I was able to get them back into the connector on the PCB with tweezers.
SO be sure to move them to the side when pulling the power socket out.
