Lenovo Ideapad S10 Mini Bezel Repairing Instructions

if your poorly designed s10 ideapad by lenovo is broken , and you cant find the solution, here is the rework for bezel repair,
1st of all you need to figure out which part is broken, in my case ,hinges bases were completely broken, and any adhesive couldn’t join them, tried everything.
so what i did, take a piece of soft plastic, yes use soft plastic, not very hard & shiny plastic, rough & soft,
then cut small piece from it, a piece that can cover the area to hold the screw nuts/base.
now you need heat gun/soldering air gun to melt the plastic,
put small piece of plastic on some hard piece of steal, and give heat with heat gun,
plastic should start melting , now u need something like spoon to pick the melted plastic and place on your laptop bezel, and level it , and the leave it set for few minutes,

Once the plastic is set, next step is to place the screw bases in that plastic, you can  use 2 things, iron rod & heat gun, place the hinges in right position and mark the holes with some needles, then carefully place bases on these marked position, you can see in images how i did
