When soldering where thare are other soldered parts, it is important not to heat those soldered parts to the point where they re-melt.

To draw away heat you need to use heatsinks and alligator clips placed between the part you are soldering and the soldered parts will prevent previously soldered parts from melting. Another trick I picked up from Marco's build is to wet strips of tissue paper.

Basically, it's hotter than a snake's ass in a wagon rut.
