Here is my Zombii build. This is my second pedal build and first using Madbean's PCB. Thanks for the cool resources, Madbean.

I used a pre- painted box from Pedal Parts Plus. The graphics are just the water slide decals from Smallbear. Then I put a few coats of Krylon clear coat on, baked in between each coat. There are a few blemishes and if you look close you can see the edges of the decal. But from any distance at all, it looks OK.
My first pedal was a GGG kit and I painted the enclosure and used a decal sheet I found at a hobby store locally. It didn't turn out nearly as well as this one. I much prefer drilling to painting.

Looks like the pots are 9mm Alphas, like these: http://Http://www.smallbearelec.com/Detail.bok?no=693

Yep, those are the pots. Smallbear is where I got them.

I believe these are the same thing from Mouser: http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Alpha-Taiwan/RD901F-20-15R1-B53/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMtxdMMi52izyjm9YTycY8j/aVH6ufWRgEw%3d. Looks like they are a little more expensive than Smallbear, though.

Try searching Mouser for this part number:  RD901F-20-15R1. I'm pretty sure they have the 5K ones. I stole the part number from Smallbear to search Mouser and they came pretty easily.

I used these: http://www.smallbearelec.com/Detail.bok?no=644.
I have since removed them. They were actually touching each other, so if you adjusted one, it would make one next to it move as well.
