Jeff,

great post. I've just bought a set so will be following your instructions very closely.

Good work fella.

OK, did it. Followed your instructions to the letter Jeff and it took around 45 minutes both sides start to finish. Superb.

One "tip" for your instructions if i may be so bold?; for the wiring of the power might be worth pointing out that red goes with yellow and black goes with brown wires when connecting.. I got the first one right and then promptly forgot and got the second wrong... wack

cheers again

I could have said that but I figured people would read the instructions that came with their particular kit as not all are the same .....
but hey, now you've said it!

Glad to here it was ok. I really didn't write it as a total step by step, more a guide to give people an idea on what they are getting into to make an educated decision on whether they are capable and how long it will take....

Cheers,

(I'm rubbish at documentation I must say, hence I'm in IT, and everything I produce is junk Smile One wonders then why I have been doing Technical Architecture work which is ALL documentation... urgh)
