I tried this thread a few weeks ago and it was shut down on the pre tense that there is already a DIY ( How to's and FAQ's) forum. My argument was that it is fraught with pandemonium and chaos with all the various models and it would make more sense to have a DIY thread in each specific model froum instead of a froum for all models' DIY's
