Step 7: Fix up any problems

If there are solder bridges anyplace, they can be tricky to fix. You might be tempted to add some flux and reheat the board. I tried that and it didn't help at all. In fact I just made things worse.

Just get some small solder wick, put some flux on the end and put it on the problem area. A quick heat with the soldering iron and it's fixed. Turn it down a little from where you would solder through hole stuff.
