My co-worker used to work for apple, he replaces this stuff all the time, buys used ipods, iphones, ipads, and changes batterys and screens for quick money or for cheap personal electronics for himself he said the videos cover it well.
There are 30+ iPods out there, each with their own very specific things.
I have done batteries in 2g Nanos; 1G, 2G, 3G Touch, and a 5g Video (classic) and each one had its own thing that made it tough or easy.
I bought a very beat up 2G 32gig Touch for 30 bucks, replaced the LCD and the battery and for less than 50 bucks have a nice iPod. I wish it was a 3G, but I like buying broken but fixable things and doing it (if I buy new I still take it apart, this was I have a good reason to, and don't invalidate any warranty I might have hahaha).

It doesn't look as good as the shiny finish it came with, but it sure looks better than the scratchy back it had before.
There is a nice SC coming up for auction in Raleigh Dec 6th. I saw the car at the last auction in June, sat in it, etc. It's really in nice, original condition. https://inventory.raleighclassic.com/vehicles/51/1989-ford-thunderbird

The avocado trees are 6mo, 3mo, and 2mo old. The fig tree is 4mo old, the mango is 1mo old. The pomegranate seeds were just put in last weekend, so they haven't...
