The board is rather cramped at the 4.7K and 22K resistors. I'm a little bit worried about getting my soldering iron in there to solder the eyelet. Is it acceptable to physically offset the resistors to provide more room at the eyelet (see the attached picture). There is vertical separation between the resistor and capacitor leads.
Thanks!

Looks good. You can mount the resistors that way if it makes assembly easier for you. But there is actually enough room to mount the resistors between the eyelets. You just have to bend the leads close to the resistor bodies. Then you can solder the eyelet from the bottom like a PC board.

Thanks for the response. That makes sense.
