Before i put everything back together i like to Ohm everthing out make sure there is good continuity.  I test many spots and if ther is a bad spot you can add foil as a jumper until everthing is good.
Finally after a few hours and a couple of redbulls your Sheilding job is done. slap everthing back together, restring, and rock on. And dont forget to thank the Boss for help.

 would aluminum shielding tape work or is foil and glue better also i like to look of no cover on the back but pulled the ground of with my belt buckle so i made a plexi glass cover for mine and the aluminum on the back cover would kinda kill the whole concept i can skip on that right?

yes aluminum tape works really good, i use it on the back of the pick guard. but i like using foil in the cavities b/c its easier to get the bends in. and as far as the back plate i always do it b/c i like overkill but its not really needed. but if you have plexi cover i think it would look cool if the cavity was done. With the tape just make sure if you overlap peices it ohms out.  if you dont have conductivity threwout the sheilding then it is pointless.  Send me a Pic  i like seeing other peeps sheilding jobs.
 ok i will as soon as i get my new pickguard
