[* black] Now you can get ready to solder the DB-25 connector to the end of the newly trimmed wire harness.
[* black] Start by stripping off about 3mm of insulation from the end of each wire
[* black] Because each stripped wire will just barely fit in the solder cups for the DB-25 connector, it's easiest not to tin the wires before inserting them into their respective positions.
[* black] Look on the back of the DB-25 connector (the end with the solder cups) and identify pin 1 (labeled with a faint imprint in the plastic for the connector)
[* black] Use the guide shown to attach wires to the DB-25 connector. Be sure that battery polarity is correct by measuring for continuity between the forward (positive) terminal in each pack and the other end of the wire it goes too
[* icon_note] The four I2C wires and the two AUX wires can be any of the extra six that were potted into the endcap- there is no order that need be put to them at this time. Following the photos later, the yellow strand on the tether line should be TETHER_A (18) and the blue strand should be TETHER_B (19)
[* black] There should be four pins that are left empty (TP22-TP25)
