Yeahm, this is an excellent write up. The hardest parts is getting the grills out... this link shows exactly where the tabs are to get them out.

I am in westdale, right by mcmaster. You probably have seen it if you are around here. I don't bring it to school every week, but I have it quite a bit of the time. I hardly ever use it because I don't have a parking pass at school, so when it is here, it sits for a lot of the week.
