OK. I have the completed job being compressed for a few hours to assure that the screen is fully seated in the upper region (near the camera). It appears that something may be keeping the glass and plastic bexel slightly stood off from the fully seated compact position.
Advise which part/surface that the adhesive cut outs go on. I put one (near/around the home button) on the opposite surface. It was in the correct location ultimately, but was not as easy of a sequence.
