I've done their hm300 which is quite a bit easier than the super fuzz because it doesn't have the board-mounted switch. i didn't bother making it true bypass because a buffer here and there is okay in my book (18 buffers... not so much), so i just replaced their momentary switch with a soft touch momentary switch. i kept the board-mounted pots on, drilled a hole big enough so that the shafts could poke through and they're held in place by the knobs. had to use a regular jack instead of the stock board-mounted one. used the board-mounted jacks, unsoldered them to get the board in the box, then resoldered to hold it in place.

i'd like to caution again against going the true bypass route, as the board-mounted jacks (which you'd do away with going true bypass) provide a lot of stability to the board inside the box. big pain in the ass, little reward

uses a stereo jack to disconnect power when nothing is plugged into the input. if you care about this, use one. i always power from supply so i'd use mono jacks, or really whatever i had handy
if you're going for new jacks, give consideration to how the board will stay mounted in the enclosure. maybe standoffs?
