Next is to mount the switches and LED plate to the Hama viewer. Take the bottom half of the Hama viewer
Now cut away the 2 tabs on each side to make room for the switches
Test fit the switches
Place the LED plate over the switches and check the fit.
Mark a hole for the green LED and the red one
Both holes are marked, drill away!
Refit the switches
Put the LED plate back on
Now put the green LED back in the socket and glue it down. You can also run wires from the LEDs and switches here if you want them to be functional.
Put the switch covers back over the switches
Now glue the LED plate to the Hama back piece. 5-minute epoxy works well.
Finished back piece of the Hama viewer.
