The sticker is only here for your pleasure. You can just stick it in the top of your PS2 to show people that you've crystalize your console.
For wires and the chip, I uses double face tape.
what about the chip itself? what did you guys use to glue that one?
I've noticed you soldered your 3v3 onto a point different from the instruction manual.... what is that? a resistor? etc? because the instruction manual 3v3 location is pretty far off.
Yes. How do you get the ribbon cable effect. Are the wires just laid parallel to each other or are they stuck together with some kind of adhesive?

First start by soldering them all to the motherboard one by one. When you have them all soldered to the motherboard you can start routing them back to the modchip tacking them in place with small amounts of super glue to keep the wires in place. When applying the glue us a small piece of wax paper placed under the wires as you go, this will help you to align the wires up next to one another and also keep the glue from getting on the motherboard. You want to keep the glue off the motherboard as much as you can. You just trying to tack the wires together not so much to the motherboard. Also when applying the glue don't pure it straight out of the dispenser, pool a small amount of glue on a piece of wax paper. With a toothpick or other similar implement, dip into the glue then tack the wires with the glue on the toothpick. This gives you better control of the glue and also keeps it from getting all over.

EDIT: Better yet just have a look at this tutorial
