Lemme see if we have room for such a board. One thing to keep in mind, a DIY board should be DIY tutorials, not questions...

"How do I fix this?" goes on the main E65/66 board.

"Here is a step by step how to change/take apart/remove/replace (etc)" goes on a DIY board.

If a response to a question ends up being a good DIY resource, just ask that it be moved to the DIY section. Otherwise, the DIY board and the E65/66 board become one in the same, and the DIY information gets lost among all the other chats, OT, and non-DIY posts.
