    Absolutely not. It is quite a challenge even for the brave. I have my professor, Mr. Mehta, in college to thank. He used to say - "If you are given an ax and an hour to chop a tree down, spend the first 45 minutes at least, sharpening the ax". I have been working on this for almost 2 months now, but picked up the screwdriver only 2 days back :D

    Great Going Sir.

    Dear Mods... How about changing his nickname from "PatchyBoy" to"Sir Patchy" ??? :)

    Sir, I hope you wont mind at least me addressing you as "Sir Patchy" with great respect.

    Hearty Wishes for many more successes to all your innovations and experiments.

    Regards,

    Neel

    Rajan, This is an amazing effort and requires a tremendous amount of courage and determination. It is not easy to play around with such an expensive piece of equipment. Hats off to you . Respect !!

    His Excellency Sir PatchyBoy the Great? ;)

    On another note, when is the testing phase beginning? Hope there is a nice isolated road somewhere to test on.

    Somehow "Sir Patchyboy" does not sound good to me. I suggest "Sir Patch-alot" :D

    Thanks for all the appreciation guys. I am most comfortable being referred to as Rajan. PatchyBoy, is fine too. As posted in another thread, that was the nick given to me by my colleagues in Australia, as I was responsible for applying Hot-fixes and Patches on Enterprise servers. My handle has nothing to do with "Patch Work" :D. As a matter of fact, I hate patch work. Please do not add Sir, His Excellency, etc. I like to believe that the forum accepts me as I am :D

    As for the final outcome and road test, as mentioned earlier, I am going to have to wait for those elusive MQS Female contact pins. My fault. Should have ordered that along with the CC stalk, as that has to come from the UK as well. I just assumed I can find it in SP Road. Assuming the shipment arrives during the course of next week, the road test will tentatively happen on 20th July. I am planning on using the Hosakote - Kolar stretch of the Old Madras Road. We can maybe plan a mini meet too, if there are takers, that is.

    Bear with me till then. Alternately, I can start posting a "How To" and make it a running log, till the road test is done. What do you guys think?
