Everybody knows I'm a little unstable I have just bought a left-handed squier but I'm a right hander. I am going to restring it do I have to take out the tunners and rearrange them?

no, you don't have to do anything with the tuners. the nut might be a problem though.

Yeah, the nut slits are going to be backwards. You're probably gunna have to replace the nut

If you wanna be real ghetto, just turn the nut around. It will look funny, and the action may be a mm higher for the first few frets, but hey...

Ignore this

There's no real reason not to but at the end of the day there's no real reason to do so either

Just string it backwards and either replace or turn the nut as has been previously recommended

I used to want to play a lefty Strat right-handed and was tempted to buy a lefty Squier Strat just so I could play it flipped but I decided against it. There was only one Jimi Hendrix and everyone since who flips a Strat is a worshiper. I admire Hendrix and his contribution to music and guitar culture but I don't worship players or their images.
