Looks good! Where do you get those little raspberry stickers? I also have those same buttons you used for L and R, how were they for fitting in the case, and are they much better than the little tiny buttons?
I'm really tempted to build another GBZ, I have all the part minus the screen (only downside is my my button board will either be a chopped up DMG board, or a i'll buy a basic button board. So we'll see what happens.
Thanks! I got them from eBay first time around then another set from: https://swag.raspberrypi.org/products/stickers
You can also get them from Pimoroni as @VeteranGamer has mentioned: https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/stickers
As you'll see by these links though, they are often out of stock hence why I went to eBay first time around. You should be able to find some if you do some digging, or I think I even signed up to be notified of new stock on one website.
As for the buttons, they are essentially the same style button and the holes can be drilled with the same step-up drill bit used for the front buttons.
Mounting them is a little more tricky as they need gluing down obviously but just be careful not to glue the button cap down as the inside lip of the button it sits inside the case. I found plenty of mount points for the glue however.
Best screens I've used and continue to use as from Gearbest:

Although it doesn't say it, these will run off of 5v out of the box. Looks like they have a flash sale on, too!
Id defo recommend a simple button PCB too, few dollars on eBay
