Not much to it really, you've already got the buffer which is pretty much required to drive the 30+ feet of cable from guitar to amp. Between the previous post and Waldo's website you can learn all you need to make it happen. Once it's installed, it won't be a distraction as you don't mess with it while you're playing, unless you toggle to bypass.
Essentially what you will need is to install a second jack (TRS - tip, ring, sleeve) and a DPDT toggle switch that will either send the signal through the loop or bypass and go straight to the output. The TRS jack you install will send the signal down the A side of the stereo cable (tip), through your effects chain and back up the B side of the stereo cable (ring) "before" the volume control. The volume control is a voltage divider, so without the loop anytime you cut the volume you cut the voltage going to the pedals which can cause variations in tonal response, especially in the envelope filters we all love so much.
So, you will need -
DPDT toggle switch
Cabling and junction box. I got my cable from Andrew Olson, but a search here will find you other options. The junction box I built myself for less than $20 and using schematics on Waldo's site.http://www.aoguitars.com/http://www.wald-electronics.com/misc.html
