Snap the sides into place. Try not to put too much sideways force on the potentiometer shafts.
This stage can often be made difficult or impossible if the mono jacks are not properly fitted or the legs of the mono jack are bent outwards.
Screw the nuts onto the mono jacks.
Make sure all the sides look square with respect to one another and the unit has very little play.
Test the potentiometer before soldering the rest of the pins. The potentiometer shaft should not rub on the panel when turned, if it rubs repeat the reheating of the joint but apply gentle pressure away from the rubbing point.
When you are happy with the fit solder all the pins and repeat the process for the others.
Note: rubbing will not cause the metal synth to not work, but will cause the potentiometer to have a shorter working life and be more difficult to turn.
