iMac (post 2012) HD replacement: alternatives to double-sided tape?


Going to bite the bullet and replace HD on some 21.5 iMacs that require cutting the foam seal and then taping the display back in.

Traditionally, either you cut your own double-sided tape or buy  pre-cut adhesive.

I was wondering if anyone has ever simply taped the Mac back together on the OUTSIDE using black gaffer's tape, rather than spend so much time scraping off the old adhesive on the inside.

I'm going to try it anyway; I have a couple of these iMacs with dead motherboards to use as guinea pigs. Just hoping that maybe someone else has already tried it.

Speed is more important than aesthetics in this case.
