Solder Guide
You can follow the Build-Guide for the normal Plaid pcb. The only differnece are the two additional resistors (R9 & R10 are 5.1kOhm).
The usb-c connector is a bit difficult to solder. I can do it for you.  "Soldering service for USB-C connector"


How to install the guard plate (Instead of the two nuts, use the M2x10mm standoff).
The case assembly is very similiar to the Plaid-Pad. Here is a video of it.
