Nice! I'll take a better look at everything at the next meet.

Yo Marc, which meet will you be going to? The one in Queens or the one at Rockland Lake, NY?

I don't understand why wires needed to be cut on this mod. To get my sunglass holder illuminated, all I did was keep the cig lighter behind the console and glued the 2 led lights to inside of the sunglass tray. Works perfectly...plus I get to keep the access plug in case I want to hardwire a PS3 or V1

We used a Titanium drill to drill through the break pedal, it only took 20-30 seconds to go through each hole.
