Appreciate all your hard work on this, Hoppy.
I've got all the tools, just not the skill to use them very good. I had a hard enough time just trying to solder a headphone cable to a new jack today. But I might see what I can do when I get some spare time.
Otherwise I'll check with Ductapemaster (I'm really good at using duct tape to mod things
) to see what we can work out.
