Use this guide to replace the adhesive on your iPad to seal the deal on a repair-job well done.

Before you begin peeling and sticking tape, it's important to have clean adhesion surfaces on both the front panel and the rear case. Use a spudger to scrape off any large excess bits of original adhesive, then clean all of the gluing surfaces with a paper towel and rubbing alcohol or Goof Off.

It is recommended that you peel each adhesive strip as needed, rather than lay them out all at once.

Unfortunately, as of my order shipped on 5/30/2019, this guide is obsolete. The new strips are in clear semi-rigid carrier, with transparent blue backing, The new adhesive strips:

There are now only four strips of adhesive, die cut to different shapes which are completely unlike those shown in this guide - two long, unwieldy strips that run the full length of each side and wrap partway onto the top & bottom, a third strip that wraps around the front-facing camera at the top (with no applicable instructions I put it on backward so it doesn’t fit the side strips), and a fourth little bitty strip  with a half-arrowhead, about 5/8”/17mm long, that doesn’t come close to filling the 1-1/2”/4 cm gap between the home button and the right-side strip, but I stuck it on anyway,

As a result, these instructions are no longer relevant. Sorry Sam’s great effort is no longer useful.
