    Soldering audio board to Teensy 3.6

    Hey all, hope this is the right place to post this but I just got in my Teensy 3.6 without headers as well as the audio board & mic, etc.

    My question is on soldering the audio board on top of the 3.6. This seems like a REALLY stupid question but do I have to solder the pins to the 3.6 then put on the plastic insulator on top of the extra long header pins, then place the audio board and solder the joints?

    OR can I just forgo the soldering the pins to the 3.6 clamp down the plastic insulator on top of the 3.6 then place the audio board on top of the insulator and solder the joints? I've attached some screen shots showing what I'm talking about:

    *Not sure why pics are upside down.

    Of coarse I haven't soldered anything yet and will await a response. My senses tell me that this is a stupid question and I absolutely have to solder the 3.6 even if the pins are longer. But if I can avoid work or make things nicer then I will, thanks!

    Not too shabby...

    Well I thought I'd go ahead and post the results of what I was intending the entire time. Just used some extra long header pins, then used the plastic from another set of header pins for the top layer insulator. Soldered the 1st row on the extra long pins, then placed the insulator which was kinda difficult but was able to get enough room I believe. Last I just clipped the extra long pins that hadn't been used/covered by the audio board as best I could. Also, there was some difficulty in getting the condenser mic attached with the ceramic insulator, etc. Point being the pins on the mic snapped off and well I ended up improvising...

    Here's the soldering on the 1st set:
