[SOLVED] CSO - R1/R2 connector got squished [Circuit Sword]

Just got my kit in the mail. I was looking it over, and found some damage to the back board.

Yeah, the connector looks broken, but most probably it will still work... Just get in contact with kite... Atm you can also get the daughter-board with an analog volume wheel for a few bucks from him...

Yeh do your best to neaten it up, if it crumbles away that's fine, but enough is there and the pins look perfect so the connector will still fit and hold connection. Might not be as secure as usual but luckily that connector won't see much stress. If it is an issue, just send me an email I can get you a replacement no problem.

I found a bag of male and female 4 pin JST connectors! Bought em a long time ago and completely forgot I had them. They were rediscovered while I was digging around for parts to use in the CS build.

Its not on perfectly straight, but they look pretty solid and the multimeter continuity test went well.
