The PDF instructions has a lot great tips, such as figuring out how long the LED leads should be.

Be sure to align anything that has a pin 1 or is polarized properly.

When soldering the RF connectors, only solder the center pin, then check alignment.

If you are happy with alignment, then solder the outer pins.

Similar thing with RJ-45 connectors and the 4 pin chokes. Solder one pin, check you are happy, solder far pin, check you are happy, then you can solder the rest.

If you are not happy you can easily remelt the solder on a single pin and adjust, but with all the pins are soldered you can not.

If you do the optional low pass filters or anything SMD be sure to have flux pen, otherwise not needed.
