A handy KTAG rainbow probe method

I thought I'd share one of my pain free methods for using the Ktag rainbow cable on certain ECUs.
The ECU shown here is a ford DCM3.5 from a ford cmax 2 I want to clone.

The method is pretty simple, I use fabric/ quilting pins and wedge the tips of the wires into the circuits holes.
This saves soldering the ribbon cable as we all know that it's a sensitive time consuming job.

Couple of tricks to use is, don't push too far (obviously) solder the tips of the wires for rigidity and clean the silicon protection layer of the pcb.

Works first time and is extremely risk free

Thanks and rep would be appreciated  Fing32
