Yesterday I received the pushbutton switches for this case; some ring-illuminated momentary switches, dot-illuminated latching switches, and a non-illuminated momentary switch

I added some stops to the panels to ensure flush edges

what are you useing for glue on the plexieglass ?

 

I'm using Polycarbonate Cement SC-325 available from US Plastics.

 

I use a bottle w/ a 25 Ga needle to apply it ("plasticator"); just clamp the parts together, and apply it at the seam.
