PCB Part 5 (Soldering addendum)

:) Left this part out.

After you have soldered your components and tested your board. Now for the finishing touch. You can lacquer the Bottom of the PCB. My friend Basir uses florescent yellow spray paint and gives a light coat. This prevents the copper from oxidizing. Though not required, its recommended you do it. Other option is that you tin the PCB before soldering. I cannot get an even coating and don't like the way it looks. Getting a tinning solution for a neater even coat is another option but too expensive.
