Just a few things I wanted more advice on before the install. (This would be my 1st project) A lot of people are suggesting not to tin the pad. Only to tin the wire, place it on top of pad and tap it with the iron. Whille other people recommend tinning both ends. From my practice, it seems better to tin both but with the wii's delicate pads this might be pushing it as excessive heat will lift the pad. What to do? Another point going around is about flux. Half the people say don't bother and the other half says to use it. Are these two ideas more of opininons from people? It seems like the people with more experiance say forget the flux while the newbie say use the flux. If I had to do it right now I think I would do the following: 1) Tin both wire and pads on wiikey and solder with a tab of flux on the wiikey points. 2) Tin only the wire, tab small bit of flux on wii board points. 3) Hold wire over points and tap iron and solder to board. Any help is appreciated.
