2022-01-03 (M) EWC_Panel Faceplate populating

I coated my hardboard faceplate with two coats of black polyurethane. The first pass looked inconsistent, and the second layer helped. When I thought about mounting my components, I realized I had forgotten the arcade button. There was still room next to the screen, so I drilled a large hole with a step bit and cleaned the edges. I had to remount the potentiometer, but I taped the screws while waiting so I didn't lose any hardware. The OLED display came with header pins, but they stuck out too far, and my screen holder didn't accommodate that. I heated up my soldering iron and pushed the pins backward so the tops were flush with the board. Everything looked clean when I finished.
