Sili-Face II Final Assembly

I tried some mods on the Sili-Face pedal and decided to keep the circuit as designed.  I've read some negative things about it, but I like it.  It does exactly what it is supposed to do:  it's a 'narrower' sounding fuzz than a Fuzz Face.  And it's actually more of a distortion - I've found that playing full chords with it sounds good.

Anyway, now I need to figure out how to stuff it into the box.  I say 'stuff' but actually, the board itself is so small that I have a lot of options.  I'm using a Hammond 1590B clone box here.  You could go smaller for sure.

So all along during this build, I kept thinking I'd use double-sided tape to attach the circuit board.  But I can't seem to find any foam-type tape around and I know I have some.

So it's velcro to the rescue.  A little wonky, but it works.  You can see most of the other components in place. I used a 12mm (I think...) pot and it's really cool. How do they make them that small?

I had a bunch of other-project detours during the building of this thing, but overall, it only took a few hours to complete, including finishing the box.
