Most of the repair info will apply to other ThinkPads.
My Thinkpad X200 chasis has taken some damage (as well as a USB port and my Thinklight), so in this video, I totally disassemble it and move it to the chasis of a broken (but superficially pristine) model.
I wanted to move my Librebooted motherboard mainly, but also moved by Atheros wifi, RAM cards and everything else into a nearly mint chasis. In the end, it worked out even better than I expected, as the screen I replaced it with ended up being a more recent, much brighter model!
