New car, New mods...

Traded in the 2000 Dodge Neon and got a 1997 Honda Accord... First mods up (besides Velcroing my SCII to the dash) is to Mod the ashtray with a drimmel tool for the SGII...

See the OBDII port is behind the ash tray, which means you have to take the ash tray out to access it... Well I want to cut up the back of the ash tray so that I can put it back where it belongs so it looks stockish and still have the SGII hooked up, and all the extra wire will be rolled up in the ashtray so it looks neat...

*I dont smoke at all so this will be painless

I dont like changing the wiring in a car at all, even if the wires are the same but lead somewhere else...
