Step 1: Remove the Masking

All of the acrylic components have a brown paper mask layer on them in order to protect the surface during transport and production. This layer should be removed for proper assembly of the case.

Step 2: Insert Buttons in Top

The button pieces have arrows which should be pointing towards the top of the case.  You will want to ensure that the buttons are placed so that the board can be laid upside down on top of this piece.

 

Step 3: Attach the Delrin Mounting Clips

Clip on the first side panel.  The side panels are keyed to match the top panel, so each side panel has a specific orientation.  Pay attention to the orientation when attempting to connect the side panels.

Clip on the second side panel.  This one may take some extra pressure to snap into place.  To make it easier, you can use a small screwdriver or similar tool to push the delrin clips down.
