It goes on like this:

Step 7: Add the next piece

It looks like this:

Step 8: Add the next layer and the buttons

It looks like this:

Goes on like this:

And the buttons (these things):

go in the holes like this:

Step 9: Add the top and final piece

It looks like this, and should be the only piece you have left:

*If you DO have any other pieces left, you done goofed*

Place this last and final piece on top of the stack and gently wiggle it around to get all of the little square buttons into all of the square button holes:

At this point, use a finger to press down on the middle of the case and then press each button to make sure that you can feel all of the buttons click. If any of the buttons do not click, remove the top and flip the button over. Replace the top of the case and check again. Once all of the buttons work properly, proceed to the next step.

Step X: Screw the case together

Take the 6(six) Number 4 screws and insert them into the screw holes and with the Phillips head screw driver, tighten them down:

Be sure not to screw it too hard, or the brass inserts might pop, or the acrylic crack.

Step final Step: ENJOY!
