    Hey there,

    I have modified the instructable detailing each step.

    Please review and let me know if I am missing anything further. (I am considering the step images as optional so didn't add it now and will probably add them at later point of time).

    Kind regards,

    I am sorry but according to the new publishing guidelines, each step in the instructable must have at least one picture.
