I would call it low to medium.
Are you counting the "fear factor" involved with tearing apart a perfectly good center console?
Actually, one of the goals of doing this job en masse is that we come up with a set of instructions that others can follow later on. Having those definitely lowers the threshold for jumping in. For example, in my case, I have no idea how to disassemble the center console to run the wiring. My fear is that I would pull hard on something and crack off a tab that's critical for holding it in place. Job cost goes up having to replace that part. With instructions, though, no fear at all. Because Electric4Me has done the job already, he can provide guidance. The work is not difficult, but having good instructions is key. If you've seen us do the horn upgrade at our monthly SF BayLEAFs meetings, then I'm guessing you are probably prepared to take this one on as well.
I did run my hand very gingerly under the passenger side seat yesterday and found some potentially sharp edges in the seat pan. So I'm thinking that bandages will be a key "field consumable" for this job.
