NOTE: Acrylic is a hard and stiff plastic which is sensitive to stress concentrations and shares a certain level of fragility with glass. Acrylic can scratch easily and should be cleaned with a mild solution of dish detergent and warm water. Never use cleaners unsuitable for acrylic. Never use a dry, abrasive cloth.
Here are the parts from the case kit:
Follow these images checking parts and orientation of the acrylic pieces. You will see a before and after image for each step. Make sure you have all the parts ready, shown in the before picture.
Insert the male end of the 8mm stand offs into each of the mounting holes on the Pi from the underside. Secure in place with the 11mm F/F stand offs, these should be on the top side of the Pi.
Attached the TV uHAT to the Pi's GPIO header, and secure with two of the 11mm M/F stand offs.
Place the thin strip of acrylic onto the stand offs top and bottom of the HDMI port, and secure in place with the remaining two 11mm M/F stand offs.
Time to add the side plates. Start by turning the Pi on its side, GPIO side down, on to the side plate and add the USB/Ethernet plate.
Now add the SD card side, followed by the HDMI plate.
Now we can carefully add the bottom plate, making sure the cutout in the bottom plate is above the SD card slot on the Pi. Secure using the M2.5 screws
All thats left to do is add the top plate and secure with the remaining M2.5 screws.
