Please let me know if anything stands out to you in the photo of the recent board which I've just installed. You have a far better eye for what does and does not look good, and I'll be certain to double-check anything that you recommend I do so here

Also, just for my own learning experience, what are some giveaways I should look for in regards to what constitutes a well-soldered joint? I know that no components should be loose, and I obviously expect a clean looking solder from the factory, but is there anything else in particular that I should keep an eye out for especially with regards to wear and tear?

Thanks again for your time.

Edited to add: I just noticed that the new board doesn't appear to include the plastic spacers. How critical are these to its proper operation?
