What's wrong with pre-tinning? This keeps the copper from oxidizing before it gets to you.
I get the idea but the layer is a bit too thick worried me, if I add solder paste and heat, I am not sure if the 0805 will sink and be flush with the board.
Maybe I should use less solder paste, maybe I am just paranoid because I never soldered on this much pre-tinned board before.
I am also worried the tinned layer will affect soldering with hot air, maybe part won't adhere as it might disturb surface tension of solder paste.
Just add paste flux and heat up !
I will experiment to use flux to stick few and see if I can hot air them at once without using tweezers for each.
