Just bought an empty A500 case and in a separate buy an A500 keyboard. Still got a Raspberry laying around. :) Now for the rest...
* Use the tip of the soldering iron to insert 4 heat sets into the top of the Pi mount, 4 more heat sets into the top of the TS board mount, 4 more into the panel mount screw receptacles on the right back mount, and 4 more into the left back mount.
So basically let the heat melt the plastic so the sets can settle in. The URL doesn't to the sets isn't available anymore btw.

Edit: yes, getting some from AliExpress :)

Anyone know the best temperature to get the heat sinks into the plastic molds?

Edit: 200 degrees C. That was the lowest temp setting on my soldering iron. It worked. Pro-tip: Don't force it... let the heat do it's job.

This is great!

Has anyone made a modification to work in an A1200 case?

Anyone on setting the drivelight and HD activity yet? I set it to Numlock and it still does not work. Too bad.
