Im concerned mostly about a T480 bezel (01YR491) that isnt available on eBay or anywhere else right now, and possible a few T25 parts (keyboard, etc) that are listed as out of stock.
Has anyone had experience ordering things while out of stock? Do they just cancel it eventually, or will they restock for you?
Also, if converting a plastic-lid WQHD machine to Low-power FHD Magnesium lid, all I need is a magnesium lid, MG lid bezel, FHD cable, and the screen, right? Do I need to change any brackets?
parts are impossible to find. i know people in China who cant get the parts directly from the factories there.
I really like your suggestion of the Dell XPS 15 9500 panel into the T480. That is AMAZING PROJECT.
that would be the ultimate mod for the T480!
Im going to go ahead with the 16:10 mod as soon as I have parts. The people saying it wont fit are looking at the wrong dimensions. For whatever reason, dell calls the width of panels the height, so just by comparing W to W it seems to big (I made the mistake at first as well), but it should be doable with a few mm to spare left and right, and should be easy if youre willing to lose the webcam (which Im not, so Im at an impasse there, going to try and see how much hacking up I can do to the hinge mounts).
As for the T25 mod, Ive got all the parts now, just have to 3d print some brackets and Ill throw it together. I was able to get most stuff from encompass, and ended up spending ~300 on parts in total (would have been closer to 500 without a discount I got, so I lucked out), and given that I got my T480 for ~150 (had a smashed LCD and lid, but I was planning on upgrading those anyways so I didnt care), Id say it was worth it.

And how about the 01YR490 instead?
