[Question] Solder barrel connector to directly board on Akitio Thunder 2

I've unfortunately damaged the female barrel connector input on my Akitio Thunder 2. The port is loose and will lose power (crashing everything) with even the slightest bump. This makes using the eGPU extremely frustrating. 

How can I directly solder the lead from the molex > barrel connection straight to the Thunder 2 board? I remember someone did this on the Techinferno forums but I can't find the post anymore.

Thanks!

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
