[WTB][UK] T420 LCD Back / Cover - Unmarked

#1 Post by GrifterGuru » Fri Sep 14, 2018 5:54 am

I am trying (and failing at the moment) to locate a clean (unmarked/non-scratched) T420 LCD Screen back/cover.

All of the ones I have seen have had scratches of some form from minor to severe and are not what I am looking for.

Do any members have one available that they would be willing to sell? I do not mind importing and I do not mind paying via Paypal and covering any costs of that payment method.

Hoping a member will be able to help out.

f you CAN help. drop me a PM.

If I do manage to source a replacement for mine, it will mean the one currently fitted will be going begging. It would be ideal to replace a broken/missing one until another comes along, but is dependant on finding a quality replacement first.

Thanks everyone ;)

Another option would be a vinyl decal on the lid! 8)

I work with vinyl on a regular basis as a hobby business and TBH, I do not want it anywhere near a laptop. It's bad enough having to smell the stuff when I work with it, I would rather not contend with it on a laptop.

Other than a unique sticker on the palmrest of my L412, even that is vinyl free. Never can tell what the glue will do to te base material over time.

A nice idea, so thank-you for the thought. I do, however, want to keep the T420 as "Stock" looking as possible with the exception of the LCD which will be upraded to a more modern unit.
