Great guide, kudos! Upgraded an old iMac 21.5 late-2012 (EMC 2544).
The stripes (bought with the “pizza-cutter” tool) were of the right length and shape.
One little remark on “Step 4” - “Insert the tip of a spudger into the hole …” : the hole is obstructed by clear film on both sides of the tape; the spudger can’t help with the alignment as suggested, although the film is clear and you can locate the reference hole/notch by looking-thru the clear film. Same holds true for strips 2, 1 and 5.
I found strips 4L and 4R (steps 10, 11) to be the challenging ones: start from the sides of the central screw, lay down in place the (partially peeled) portion of the tape and, while progressing, gently peel-off the portion of the tape to stick next. The lower edge of the tape almost sits on the ledge of the aluminum front part of the chassis. Never pull the tape as the peeled part is easy to stretch along its length.
On step 13, securing the bottom side of the screen with masking tape was a brilliant idea.
Great guide, kudos! Upgraded an old iMac 21.5 late-2012: RAM (from original 2x4GB to 2x8GB by Crucial) and hard drive (from 1TB 5400rpm to 1TB SSD MX500 by Crucial).Catalina sings!
I strongly suggest getting the strip-kit with the iFixit pizza-roller as it was extremely effective on cutting trough the adhesive (I had started with another tool , like a newerTech from iSesamo, and it partially tore the film on the back of the display). The pizza-roller may seem flimsy but it is thin enough to get in between the screen and the chassis groove: just be gentle and follow the directions in the guide; it will last for other repairs.
I used the service wedge and found it very helpful to hold the iMac in position; although IMHO it’s a little pricey accessory (a piece of high-density foam) and wish ifixit could review their markup on that. You can do without: the purpose of the wedge is clear just looking at the guide, if you can find effective alternative ways to reach the same result you will save some bucks.
