If you haven't done this since taking pictures, it might be worth putting sockets in for the diodes, since it seems you still have some experimentation to do before calling it done.

You left the 'spectrum' pot off?
Documentation shows 2 options for orientation of the spectrum pot depending on whether you are using the bass pot.

Correct, I have the Bass pot installed.  Here is a photo of the front, for your enjoyment  :)  The design is based on the 2021 Kawasaki R1 motorcycle, so I called it the R-1.

I may do something like that.  The photos above are right after I finished the build.  Since then I've added some wire leads on the clipping diode nodes, and de-soldered one side of the original 1N4148 diodes, so they're "out" of the circuit at this point.  I'm doing my testing broken out onto a breadboard first before I commit.
