Cracking Open Lenovo IdeaPad K1: Front panel assembly

After removing the motherboard and most other internal components, I stopped dissecting the front panel assembly. The IdeaPad K1's is held to the front panel (digitizer) with several screws and likely adhesive. There are also several pieces of thin metal foil that are glued to the back of the LCD and assembly. Removing the LCD from the assembly would likely require me to remove and damage these piece of foil.
