Sorry for the shoddy video editing and lack of footage during disassembly, overhead line detachment, and structural reinforcement.
Sorry for all the text – it’s a symptom of using a shitty video editor.
But please do bear in mind that I spent over 6 days of productive time dealing with the video work associated with producing this tutorial. It was created in order to provide an ACTUAL service panel change…something that I’d never seen in all of my time on youtube.
