x0xi0 #330-133.5 : Top Panel 'Full Kit' Mod

It took about 3.5 hours to pull the top panel together. Like the I/O mod, the steps were relatively simple. Brian has laid the documentation out in a pretty straightforward way. Three components were missing: one 103k capacitor and two 22K resistors. A quick trip to Supremetronic sorted that out.

There isn't really any testing or calibration one can do until it's wired up to a power supply and x0xb0x so there will certainly be more work to follow once the new x0x is built. I'm hopeful that everything is in order here. It looks absolutely amazing. Dropping the top panel on there gives a quick glimpse of the power of this ├╝ber 303.
