I had a DMG but the color was the first system that i was really into.
As of now, i havent been able to put too much time into shoulder buttons. I tested a few different options a while back but the main issues that pop up is 1) that back areas where it would go is curved, which makes it a little funky to work with 2) there are any screwposts near the location i'd like to put it. The closest one would create a stress point since it isnt centered. 3) the pi itself prevents me from created a pcb-mounted bracket which was my last option.
I'm still looking into it, but i didnt want it to hold up the whole project
Looking at a GBC shell I had sitting around and the 3D printed parts from Wermy's Circuit Shield video and they look like they fit with some shell modifications (required anyway when used with a MGB shell), the model would probably need some tweaks as the color shell has a bit more a gap between the screw posts than the pocket shell. Be it model modifications or perhaps swapping to different tactile buttons with longer buttons on them, perhaps add a little well within the bottom cap to help keep the tactile button lined up. Just a thought if you're still looking at L/R button options.
I was messing around with my other bracket for the dmg. Its a perfect fit horizontally. Problem is, it starts running in to the pi a bit vertically. Plus, there arent any screw posts near by to screw it into, so it would have to be glued in. And I'm a big opponent to glue.
Since its going to be a bit between making the order and receiving them, i might try a few different things. Since I have the time. But I unfortunately cant guarantee anything.
