I had a hard time finding any really good Via install pictures for the D2Pro9 so i made some of my own.
This should be of great help to anyone that doesn't want to solder to legs or doesn't have a very good soldering iron tip. I use a rather large tip to do all my work and it always comes out great.
I also had some extra time so I took accurate measurements of all my wires and made a wire "quick cut" guide that anyone can printout and use to prepare all their wires to the perfect length. I also recently got a new D2C2 board with a new layout. The via point F area looks different as well as many other areas. I found that the D2Pro9v2 is working perfectly. My new install picture now shows the new layout's point F (shown in bottom left). It is in the same spot. Just the traces around it look a bit different so it might worry anyone that gets it.

Anyone that is a bit unsure of what’s involved in removing the drive board check this out
. Also use this picture in case you want to verify what color wire goes to what pad when putting it back together.
If anyone is still scarred to do the install i would be happy to help. www.boxxdr.com
