Glue it to the backpanel

While putting it back together i discoverd some things

1.Monitor holder pushes the reset button on router (so i cut out a little part of the holder (right side white plastic)

2.The contrast and volume buttons (where still on circuitboards) are to big, so i cut them down and glued them
