Test fitting the board in the holder.

I made the end pieces and did another test fit. So far so good.

A view from the end of the holder.

So I quickly realized I made a pretty big mistake. I put one whole side of the connectors on wrong. I wasn't sure if I'd have to start over, as the tools I had were limited. I realized I might have my old solder sucker from college but where. I found it out in the garage in the bottom of my toolbox and it was time to find out if it worked and I still had the skills to desolder after I figured out which side was pin 1 and everything would work like it was suppose to.

I reflowed the solder and I had a few pieces of the copper trace that took a little beating to, so I had to bridge the solder. Not my best looking work, but it should be functional.
