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.
