    The neverending battle with the bright ideas the PO has

    Doing some chassis electrical modification, I'll definitely do a write up on that even if just to stroke my own ego. But it seem the PO has been thinking (a dangerous pastime indeed) and came up with an idea. Now I pose to you, the people who have seen everything under the sun: What the hell...
