The solution to the later is to unsolder the mode button and replace it with similar one to where the stem is about 2mm longer. Luckily I have an assortment of these tact switches but they are readily available through the usual sources. I used a four legged one, straightened the legs to 90 degree angle from the switch and snipped the other two legs flush. Now the trick is you need to mount it about 2mm lower than the PCB. It will hang there but don't worry, we have a solution for support so it doesn't get pushed back when activating. Which leads me to solution number two, PCB unit support.
I designed a neat little two piece bracket for support that is totally glue less. The way it works is you place the support bracket in the shell, then place the Mode/Power Switch PCB with the correct mode button and height, and slide it into place. Next screw in the PCB to the support bracket with two small m2 screws. Then, insert the second 3D part behind the mode switch which adds support and strength for when the button is pressed. Finally insert a screw through the two 3d parts into the existing screw mount hole in the shell.
When done, your mount should look like this.
I have made this available to anyone wanting to print it. Enjoy and Happy Modding!
