Section 4: CAPACITORS

You should add the capacitors all at once.  The leads may need to be bent slightly to fit the holes, depending on the exact type of capacitor supplied in the kit.

First add all the small yellow 0.1 uF capacitors (C6, C7, C9, C10 labeled as "104"). Solder the connections and clip off excess lead length.

Next add the larger orange 0.01 uF capacitors (C3, C4 labeled as "103M").  Solder the connections and clip off excess lead length.

Next add the smaller orange 22 pF capacitors (C1, C2 labeled as "22").  Solder the connections and clip off excess lead length.

Lastly, add the two 4.7 uF blue electrolytic capacitors (C5, C8). Be careful to orient the parts as shown in the photo below, with the negative side of the body closest to the board edge..  Solder the connections and clip off excess lead length.
