Use the Flat head screw driver to remove the 2 screws at the bottom of the screen.

this will take a little time since there not in the greatest place for a screw driver.

This step is tricky.

You need to find a very thin card(Credit cards are too thick) and place it between the area that looks like metal and plastic. Apply pressure to "pry" backing away from screen.

Nice, but I personally wouldn't do this trick with screws. You can easily damage them that way.
It's better to disassemble almost half of a macbook than having the cover unfixable.

I'm having trouble removing the 2 screws. I'm using a flat head screw driver that i use to fix my glasses but the screw won't budge and the screw driver's tip is getting chipped.

 Awesome.
How could I do it with a early 2008 MacBook?

a simpler way is a substance called gallery glass its a liquid plastic that is translucent when dry

Nice job. I did this when I had an iBook (the screen housing was attached with only four bolts). I actually used a logo printed on transparency. The best part about this mod is that it is easily reversible and still gets complements.
