Usually they gold leaf space stuff for the radiation protection. The leaf is so thin just touch it and it'll peel off onto your finger no matter how well you wash. Gloves wont help either so thin just a little rub and it'll tear the leaf.
(Those little blobs are only a few micrograms, scientists wont get rich scraping gold leaf off their finger tips even after a lifetime's worth.)

Use an artist's paint brush, rub on face to build up a little static, pick up the leaf and "paint it on". So simple even an old fool could do it... oh wait.. I don't have any. Traded all mine for bitcoins.
If you can keep your head while those about you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation.
I'm basically putting together a new guitar with an old body.
I got a combination of Seymour Duncan Hot Rails and Cool Rails and now I'm figuring out the potentiometers. (1 of them has to be push/pull ).
The wiring scheme says 250 Ohm, so I got that (though I don't know what the difference 250 vs 500 actually does), but there is also a difference between a logarithmic ("audio") and a linear potentiometer. I read you should use the logarithmic ones since they don't "cut-off" at the end. Is that both for volume and tone (I need 1 volume and 2 tones) ?
Any other advice I should take in account for the potentiometers, eg how do you know what knobs will fit on those meters?
Any advice on the switch itself (5 way switch)?
Volume pots should be log taper, otherwise all the action is in a few degrees at the bottom end. Remeber that loudness is essentially logarithmic. Tone, it depends on the circuit. If you fit a linear one and all the effect is concentrated at one end, then go log (or antilog, which can be hard to obtain).
Knobs: Most older pots had a 1/4" dia shaft with a flat for a grubscrew. Newer ones (here, at least) have a nominal 6mm dia, splined to suit push-on knobs. You can't put a splined knob on a 1/4 shaft, but you can do the opposite, and it's all horrible and wobbly.
