Assemble the Sensor Mount

Start 

Below you can see the finished mount installed in the enclosure we just made. This sensor mount allows for air flow as well as some cable management as to not interfere with the sunlight sensor.

Attaching the Arduino 

Grab an Arduino without the base shield, Arduino part, all 3 10mm screws, and 3 nuts. The three holes in the Arduino will match up to the holes on the Arduino piece. Place the Arduino on top then add a screw to any hole. Push it through before flipping it over and attaching a nut. Don't fully tighten the nut at this time. Repeat with the other 2 holes and screw. The screw near the Arduino headers will go in diagonal and not fully down. This is okay. With all three screws and nuts attached, you can now tighten all of them.

Attaching the Base Shield 

Grab the base shield, both standoffs, and the remaining nuts. Take a standoff and place the threaded side through one of the mounting holes in the base shield. The standoff should be pointing up like the sockets do. Flip it over the shield and tighten down a nut. Repeat this for the other standoff and nut. Then place the shield onto the Arduino.

Sensor Mount 

Grab the Sensor piece, all the sensors, all the wrappers, both 6mm screws, as well as 3 long screws and 3 metal hex nuts that come with your wrappers. Click your wrappers together like seen in the picture. Place the 3 part wrapper on top of the Sensor piece. Line up the smaller holes on the short sides of the wrappers with the holes in the Sensor piece. Drop in a hex nut where there are cutouts in the wrapper. We only need the ones that have holes in the Sensor piece. Flip over and screw in a screw to each of the holes. With all three tightened we can snap in the sensors.

Wire it Up 

Now we'll need our cables. Take a cable. Unwrap it and attach one side to the BME280 socket. The other goes to any I2C socket. Take a cable. Unwrap it and attach one side to the sunlight socket. The other goes to any I2C socket. Take a cable. Unwrap it and attach one side to the WiFi Module. The other goes to the D8 socket.
