Where are the power pads on this early 2013 MacBook Pro Model?

History

Since this Macbook Pro model is so new, I cannot find any pictures/information on where the power pads on the Model A1425 (early 2013) Macbook Pro logic board... Any help (especially with pictures) would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

UPDATED: Here are the photos of my logic board that I added below in my post. If someone could point out the two specific locations where a short is needed to power my MacBook on, it would be a godsend!!

Update

I don't know where the keyboard connector is on the logic board. Do you have a photo? I don't have the exact configuration shown in the link you gave me on my logic board.

ADDED: Photos are from my MacBook's logic board below. If anyone can point out where I need to short to power my MacBook on, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

John, just like machead3 mentioned, this can cause damage. Anyhow you need to shorten pin 5 (keyboard on/off) to ground. On the connector ground is pin 29 but you can use the metal standoffs since they are easier to touch and locate. Hope this helps, good luck.
