I'm trying to build this dual DC motor module for my robot project
And I did not have the space for placing an ICSP pin header on the PCB.
So i quickly mocked up this design.

Step 1: Geting the parts

Well to build the ICSP socket with header for the PICkit 2. We need 1part experiment board I used the one with raster 2.54mm holes where every 3 are connected in rows of solder islands.
I had one 18pin DIL IC socket just lying around so i used that one. (the 16F676 is a 14pin chip)
and i took 5pins angled pin header (Always have lots of break of pin headers at home.)
and some AWG26 PTFE red and yellow wire.
Forgive me if I am wrong, but don't you need a power supply to the board to program it?
Programmer supplies power
spreadsheet link does not seem to work
Nice. I made a few of these for my PICkit II. <a rel="nofollow" href="http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~crist/Devices.xls">This spreadsheet</a> is very helpful for making them. I haven't updated it in a while, but it's got most of them.<br/>
Handy spreadsheet you have there. Do you also have the spec sheets referenced within?
Some of the pictures could be better. Still, wow, amazing job, done very neatly. Nice job!
