The wife surprised me with one of these yesterday, just need to get glue and a staple remover and it'll be on today! Thanks for the writeup, definitely not something I want to mess up. Will post pics when done!

heads up for anyone doing this... watch out for that super glue. That sh%t stained my leather bad. i was so nervouse about it messing up the electrical connection, I didn't even think to protect the leather. Got some on my gloves then grabbed the leather. Now I can't get it off


on that note if anyone has tips for removing super glue from leather, let me know!!

I've tried acetone, rubbing alcohol, and a spirits based remover. None did anything.
