    I'm presently trying to figure some things out and make this work in my favor. I believe it can be done with sufficient help. IE, LDR or Sonier, since they seem to know a lot about wiring on hand. This is the write up I was looking to Trying to compare wiring diagrams but I can't seem to find...
