ships as a kit, paper or thin plastic protective backing attached, and nylon nuts and bolts.
If your kit appears cloudy or even scorched in places, it is only on the protective film. It will be crystal clear once peeled off. Other orders from my cutting service came with paper backing and it was far more obvious that it was present.
*switch parts not included
1. Remove all paper/plastic backing from the top and bottom sides of all 5 pieces of acrylic, and caution a lot of small pieces of acrylic may fall out and can be thrown away.
2. Should be left with 1 large top piece, with cut outs to hold switches, 3 identical pieces (risers or feet) and 1 larger thin piece that will go under the 2 rectangles to become the bottom of the spring well. and 7 white nylon nuts and bolts
3. At the top, stack the 1 (of the 3 identical thin pieces) riser, then the larger bottom of spring well, then the top (with switch cutout) and place the 4 nuts and bolts to hold them together, 3 across the top and one at the base of the spring well, hand tight is fine.
4. At the bottom, stack 2 of the identical thing risers and the top (with switch holes) and line up the 3 nylon bolts and nuts to hold the 3 layers together.
