You can get small sheets of the polycarbonate pretty cheap, I think it was like $5 or $6 at Home Depot. No joke, I have had visions of that entire control area just crumbling on me when I drill out for the pots! At least this way I know it has a solid backing to hold it together.
I was surprised though at how much the wood checked on me in a few spots during the first couple coats - I've never had a topwood do that before. In the photo below, it's the burl that fans out from the area of the two pickups.
