A few things I felt worth noting after my installation.

1. I believe the TORX bit needed for the A-pillar was a size 40. The ones used for the glove box are a pretty standard size found in a basic tool kit.

2. If you elect to go the route without using the tapa, you definitely need to go out and buy a male spade. It took me a while to figure out which one to use:

The #10 spade at a 16 gauge seemed to work fine. Just strip the cable coming from the V1 adapter AFTER the fuse (so that the Fuse is still there), and crimp on the spade.

Edit: wording
