I guess your are fine. Have you checked the solder side of your connectors? That's where the funnel shaped holes are. Just examine my photos. Doesn't your PCB have holes where all the piggyback pins go? Those holes are slightly bigger and add to the "funnel" effect.
I got my connectors from Mouser. The Molex refs in the BOM on github
match the Mouser refs below. The part in bold refers to the number of pins.
These are the exact p/n I ordered from Mouser. On the solder side of these connectors, there's really no funnel shape to speak of - they are pretty small square holes? The top side is where the funnel shape seems to be, which is why I assumed these should actually be mounted on the bottom of the board (as per original). Perhaps could still be done while removing the nylon stand-offs / spacers that are on all of the pin towers?
I really don't want to solder all these buggers on and then enjoy the pain afterwards. And I will need this to sit low in order to accommodate an 8375 agnus adapter board.
Speaking of which, has anyone ever used an 8375 agnus adapter board before, and if so where do you fetch the A20 line from? Typically it would be off of Gary chip when using those adapters in an A500 or A2000, but obviously I have no Gary chip in my A1000 + rejuvenator combo.
Going to start soldering this weekend. Daunting.
