Yep, pretty much. I apply with a sponge, and then buff out the polish with a soft towel.

This might be a bit late, but if they nozzle was dripping, just pull a nozzle off another can and use it. Then when you're done, turn the can upside down and spray until just air comes out, this will clean the nozzle. Now just put it back on the can you robbed it from.

Also, I know its a bit late, but with that Soldering and the DVD drive, and how you said the wires are harder because they have lots of ends? It helps to twist them together, I always do that and it makes it a lot easier.

Here's a picture of what I mean.



Great mod btw.
hmm i think towards the end of my 5 hour soldering experience i realized how to do it all right, it was at the start when i didnt no what i was doing that i screwed it all up. this time around i dont think ill have any issues. i have no desoldering kit and at the beggining i had way overused the rosin and it was all over my work area lol..
