It's a four drink story on how I got to this point, but will save that for another time. I keep telling my wife these aren't modifications, these are personalizations. If they were modifications: we would be eating mac and cheese by the case. This is my daily driver - so will be easing into the bigger upgrades.

All of the DIYs came from this site and the details were a huge help in making things come come together - many thanks to those who led the way, saving me countless hours of reading schematics, providing what worked and most of all taking time to document it and share with the rest of us.

Will be adding pics and commentary shortly
