That is approximately "Plan C".

"Plan D":
Due to the technical difficulty, I just sent off an inquiry to a laminates house for the proper thickness of single sided pc board.

That should be interesting, am trying to prepare myself for "sticker shock".

Also, how many of these tabs can a person cut out of a 3 foot x 4 foot sheet?
Duh....
Hello, e-bay - I got some spares to sell.

Edit: The answer is: 96 x 1728 == 165,887 spares (I kept one for myself).

Next, (while waiting for the price) go find an old DVDrom drive to turn into a plastic cutter for "Plan C".

Edit:
Phooey! None of the printed flex circuits are the correct pitch to match J-14.
The one to the transport drive motor was so close I had to use a microscope to confirm that it would not work.
