I ran into the problem, that the speaker that came with the kit was a dud, I ordered some replacements, but did not want to wait, so I just used a small 20mm speaker I had on hand (this is the same one the minty pi uses, I had a lot on hand from previous orders). It did not fit in the front like the original, so I had to place it in the back, which worked fine, considering I used the small 450mah battery. If I used the 800mah one, it would not have fit.
Either way, cool little project, very easy build, soldering the pi was a breeze (results will vary based on experience). The case mods were not too bad. If the shell was a solid one, it would have been easier to just pull out the dremel, but I opted to use a knife and cutters, to try and make it look as clean as possible, since it's clear. You can still see the white pressure marks where I made some modification, but since it is all on the back, I am not too concerned.
I may put some shoulder buttons on the little lid, but at the moment I will likely leave it as is, and not plan to plan any games that need more buttons.
