Replacing a damaged Powerbook Screen yourself?

Just recently my friend dropped his beloved 17" Powerbook G4, while the end result was pretty bad, as in the screen was completely smashed, the rest of the unit is still in good condition.

Which is why I am seeking your experience and advice. [more inside]

How should I fix this banged up powerbook?

I dropped my PB this morning (truth be told, I slipped down a couple stairs and landed hard), this time really badly.

What glue to use on cracked TiBook?

Some months ago I dropped my Titanium PowerBook, and cracked the case on the lighter-coloured surround of lower case. The damage is only cosmetic, it has continued to work flawlessly since, with some sticky tape over the crack.

Thorough Powerbook checkup suggestions?

Powerbook Repair In Process: I've taken apart my Powerbook G3/333 Lombard in order to replace the AC/Soundcard (and darned if I can't see cracked solder at the solder points).
