We have to pull out the big
gunsknife now, to cut off the rest of the pelt. Layered underneath we find a metal shield, the meat in our Surface sandwich.
With more adhesive and plastic bits holding the shield from beneath, we fire up the iOpener and get back to popping.
Now that we've got a clear look at the plastic, it seems these aren't reusable clips at all, but weak ultrasonic spot welds that we've been busting through. This is definitely not going back together without a roll of duct tape.
