I am currently buying broken iPads and refurbishing them. I have an iPad 4th Generation that I am currently repairing and I wish to replace the housing on it as it is scratched to hell. Does anybody know how I can buy a new housing and have the serial numbers in the settings match the ones on the back of the iPad. Is this possible or not

Get a electronic buffer and some cutting paste and buff away! I did this to a iPhone 6 before. It looked better than new. It was so smooth and soft feeling lol. I’m sure you could salvage it to sellable condition.
