The other important tool is fine tweezers (not pliers) for holding the wires. e.g. http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/EROP7SA/EROP7SA-ND/114194 Then also fine solder, something around 0.5mm, basically as fine as you can get it.

Good Find, will be interesting to see how you go with this one. The internal of the iSight / Non-iSight models are so radically different, as to mean they are quite different builds. One challenge (that I didn't post about) was dealing with height restrictions. The Haswell NUC fits (just) not sure about previous generation. But even then I had...
