You can still bend the braid over without lifting any traces if it sucks up too much solder, just hold it flat to the board with needlenose pliers, then bend it over the corner.

I have an excellent soldering station, and use proper solder. I don’t have problems any more with gaps, but just the same, this technique is still superior. A straight solder bridge accross an empty void will never be as strong as this. No one has to employ it, I’m just putting it out there as an option.

Waking up old post to say thanks! This is how I fixed my P60 flicker on a dropped 502B light last week. The factory solder bridge had failed.

Love this forum for build/repair tips!
