Here is a picture of the assembled hilt- http://www.fx-sabers.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;area=pictures;u=86913;album=28

I noticed that most of the user who assembled the ANH version placed the clamp with the bubblestrip facing the right side of the hilt; in ANH the clamp should be facing the opposite side (in ESB an TFA it's on the right)
can the clamp of the 2.0 kit be turned on the other side or is it fixed?

Anyone know how I can get some spare red buttons for this build? Preferably with the tactile switches?

Clamp can be turned around no problem. You just have to remove the little screw and put it back in when you turn the clamp around. I just finished mine up ANH style and have the clamp the correct way. My guess is many don't know the correct way to place the clamp.

Thanks!  I didn't realize there was a screw hole on the otherside to allow for the ANH Screen Version!

With the Korbanth/Parks 2.0 Graflex kit, you can also make ANH replicas of the Production Photo and the Screen Used Version.  The Clamp can be repositioned.

Note: the Top is the Raw Kit, the Middle is the Production Photo Version of ANH and the Bottom is the Screen Used Version of ANH according to Sym-Cha.

My kit arrives next week and I'm doing the TFA version for display purposes only.

I'm confused now, do I need glue for the red button and switch?  I thought this kit didn't requre any glue.

Yep, small dab of CA (super Glue) needed in the red button cavity... you will probably need to put a small circle of  plastic/rubber/metal in there too as the hole is too long and doesn't make contact with the button top.

i to am doing TFA version but with electronics install as well
parks graflex 2.0 kits are intended to have electronics installed to the red button dosent stay of there are no wires holding it in plave that the only part that needs help staying on as far as the out side of the saber if your not doing electronics then youll need the glue to hold the switch

Are there any good assembly videos that you guys know of?  I'm awaiting my first 2.0 and plan to assemble empty as a display at least at first. Haven't been able to find any videos showing the process.
