Was thinking about repairing my K-30 but not sure about it now that I've read on how many different sized screws there are and how everything must be put back together exactly the same, I'm sure I would sneeze or something and get everything messed up.
If you read the tutorial you see that one places the screws into a template, made out of cardboard with photos glued onto that so find each screw right away.

Only a sneezing rhino would manage to blow those screws off

I've gone with the most expensive of both worlds: bought a ks2 (dead), a k100d donor, then a k-1. Somewhere behind the pile I hear a k-7 whining.. :^
