--- Pics included to show steps ---
*** Keep in mind the Longest leg on LED light is the +Positive side
*** Using Red Jumper cable for +Positive, solder end to 10K Ohm Resistor
*** Solder other end of 10K Ohm Resistor to +Positive end of LED light
*** Using Black Jumper cable for Ground, solder that to the other leg of LED light (shorter end)
*** Connect other end of Red Jumper cable to spot 4 on GPIO of Raspberry Pi 3
( Diagram included for GPIO on Raspberry pi included with Kit above )
Pic included but on right side it's the 2nd and 3rd down from top 4-6
*** Connect other end of Black Jumper cable to spot 6
*** If it lights up, then proceed to wrapping each cable in Electrical tape, i then taped both sides
together but only after you wrap them independently to avoid contact with each other.
*** Using Hot Glue Gun to place and secure the cable and LED to hole. I used a small amount first under
the LED light to give it something to rest on, then proceeded to tack it down

That's it, and a Big thanks to Old Skool Tools for making this beautiful little case for us to enjoy ;)

5Perfect case for a retro game system
By Marc R. Magos
Excellent case. Plenty of room to add components for customization. Great retro aesthetic, especially when paired with authentic-looking controllers with modern features (like the 8bitdo ones).

I wish it were easier to cut out the buttons in order to make them functional, either by perforating or adding indentations around them. I taped around them and repeatedly cut around them with a very sharp utility knife. Even though I was as careful as possible, I still made a few scratches on the front that I wasn't able to buff out. My only gripe, and not enough to warrant a reduced review.

4Nice, Retro Looking Case That Provides Ample Sapce Top & Bottom for Cooling for The RetroPie System
By Richard & Jan
Cute little box and fits well with the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B unit I got. I am knocking it off a star because the injection molding wasn't exactly clean on the unit I got. There were plastic thread on the bottom half that were peeling off and I have to scrap it off (with slight unevenness that you can actually see). Also there were a stress crack on the plastic straight out of the box. These two things are just small cosmetic issues and do not affect the usability of the box at all. I also like how there are ample space on the bottom to accommodate a heat sink for the memory chip (which is installed on the bottom of the Raspberry Pi board). Overall a good product and one I would probably buy again in the future.
