how long should this process (steps in the guide) take from start to finish if I just clean, and do not attempt soldering?

Wooo hoooo. Thank you for this write up.
Also - Does anyone know why he used a heat gun? I searched the entire guide and did not find this anywhere. What step is this in place of?

Thanks!
