Does anyone modify 350d,s here

Have a stock 350d, would like to remove ir filter and replace with clear, so that the camera can still be used for everyday photogrophay, autofocus still working. and an external IR filter....Anyone do that in Australia. or a least know where I can get the iddy bit of glass to replace, the ir filter. and Ill have a crack at it myself. "hands shaking in anticipation". What can possibly go wrong

http://www.burren.cx/photo/ir_conversions.html I came across this guy, he offers a 6 month warranty on his work. I know a few other IIS members have done it themselves, or some have just bought the hutech one already done. I know Photoncollector and Robby have done their own, [1ponders] is planning to do it, I got my 300D from Robby, he also used the Russian firmware hack for the 300D. The 350D may be similar to modify?

Buil's page shows details!!

http://astrosurf.com/buil has a section on the mechanics of removing the filter etc. Well worth looking at.
