I broke a few of the supports for one of my vents. Only cosmetic damage, but I can't stand the way it looks. I bought new OEM bottom case to replace it. Basically, every thing has to come off the old one and onto the new one. I have the manual.

Has anyone ever done this?
Any tips or AW18Vent.PNG suggestions?

Its not that hard at all. just have to go slow. I have a disassembly video all the way up to the heatsinks. From there you would just have to unplug some things from the boards. Unscrew the motherboards from the frame and then swap them all to the new one.

Are there any skins that cover the aluminum around the bottom case? I would love to protect this area with a skin since it is the main area to be scratched.
