So after a total of 10 hours I have everything stuffed except for the switches, trimpots, and a few jumpers. The next steps are to get the rotary switches temporarily tacked on to the PCB and then temporarily mounted into the L-bracket that holds the boards. Then I’ll go through and permanently solder in the rotary switches which will guarantee proper alignment with the faceplate.
Once this thing is done I think I’m going to take a few days off from building so I can get my eyes to go back into focus. I was correct in my initial assumption that this would be one of the most involved builds that I’ve ever done.
