Default The All new Ultimate DIY Thread 3/19/18

I finally got around to cleaning this up AGAIN.

I did things slightly different this time. I removed any links where the pics were gone due to Photobucket screwing the world. We lost somewhere between 30-40 links/threads so I welcome new submissions.

If you have a good tech tip or you know of one post the link and I will move it to the top please don't post the write up in this thread.

The old thread has been locked and moved to the testing section so the links will still work here.

The highlighted links in the first post are awesome.

When I got to the first link for the A4 install, it was on the OLD old DIY list. There are a LOT of links hidden in there with good information. Why not add them up top over time? Information is power. In many cases that is quite literal here.
