Today I overcame my frustration with the connectors that were too small and had all the parts present to solder the first dome. I had to file the rgb LED legs down so that they would be thin enough to fit the holes. The IR led had very thick spacers that had to go too.
The next pcb is already designed and ordered. It is merely an adapter board and holder of a 3mm photodiode that will have 4 1x2 pin header going to the next board
