Parts Came, assembly started, well darn!

The parts came in and I've started assembly. Found out the filter-caps on the 12vac supply don't fit in the PCB. Only footprint I didn't make myself, and the holes are too small. Drilled out the holes and mounted the caps on the back, only had to make two jumpers. Next problem is that i forgot to order the LM317 regulators. So, further assembly is on hold till the missing parts come in.
