Hi. Finished the Super8. I was a bit afraid about what some had to say about the difficulty of the assembly (LED for instance). But, I followed Keith's instructions in the vid and it all worked out fine, I didn't have any problems at all.
Some personal improvements that would have helped me:
1/ I hesitated for a while, because I didn't know if there was a specific way to wire the footswitches, but I assumed (right) that it didn't matter. Maybe, this could be added in the instructions.
2/ I wasn't sure if I had to add the internal tooth lock washers. I did.
3/ About the black prepainted enclosure. It would be nice to add some text on the backside: buffered/normal input, out, send return and numbers 1-8.

Anyway, very happy with it!

Wanted to add something concerning the instructions:

1/ instructions mention 23 470ohm resistors, and I counted 23 of them in the kit
however only 22 needed in the build

2/ same thing for the 3 47uF elec caps: 3 in the instructions, 3 in the kit, but only 2 needed :-)

Also, both kits I have right now have DC jacks with internal nut, whereas my first build (and the instructions) say external nut.
