What's the trick to this?
Make sure you are using a hot iron. 40 watts works very well for wiring. Biggest help I can offer is to tell you to get a "3rd hand". I think Radio Shack sells them and most hobby shops should also. It is a metal base with two arms and alligator clips at the end. You can position the wires where you need them and then use your real arms to hold the iron and solder.
