    I'd recommend leaving the protective layers on one side of the acrylic. It greatly reduces the chances of cracking when cutting or drilling and gives you a surface to make marks on.

      I've found that using a step drill instead of a twist drill also helps reduce the chance of cracking plastic materials.

    I like the addition of a light, but I have a felt sleeve that fits over my phone, with a hole and a lens fitted inside. That way you can hold it in your hand, and since this is not something you would use that often, it takes up less space.
