Brian, I have the soldering & wiring bibles for you....
you can find them both here:
"Soldered Electrical Connections - NASA-STD-8739-3"
"Crimping, Interconnecting Cables, Harnesses, and Wiring. -
I got my NASA rework cert when I worked for Hughes Aircraft in the 80's
remember only heat (melt) the solder indirectly, and always keep a damp
sponge around to keep your iron clean, like after every joint. Also if
you are soldering connectors (they are a real pain in the ass) a solder
pot is a great investment, so that you can pre-tin your wires..
Keep you work clean,
