I ended up disconnecting the front panel power switch. I modded the unit to use an external console Power Supply, and that has a switch on it.
I replaced the blue FP with a black one and made some other slight ergonomic tweaks. The main thing was to put 2" diameter knobs on the Isolator for quicker operation. The image uploading isn't working for me but the pic is on my Insta: http://www.instagram.com/arloshouston
