Choose one LED strip at the Z corner and tin its terminal pads. This will make soldering the wiring to the strip easier once the top is installed.

The LED wires running up the Z column will connect to only one of the LED strips at the Z corner, no connections are made to the other end.

Locate the roll of 6mm (1/4") Kapton tape. Gently lift the end of each LED strip at each corner and put two strips underneath the terminal pads to insulate them. See (A) in the first photo.

Now tape over the all the terminal pads except the tinned pads at the Z corner with two strips of Kapton tape. See (B) in the first photo.

The second photo shows how the Z corner should end up, assuming you chose to tin the left-hand LED strip.
