not too bad if you already have the existing dashboard and are just 'adding' to it. completely different story if you make a fully custom-from scratch dash. either way, it's a ton of work. i've done both, and i know dbornotdb has too, and he'll say the same

Im just afraid to take my dash out LOL. I start thinking what if i cant get everything hooked up right again.
