what does the first switch to the left of the steering wheel (with the same symbol as the dashboard brightness wheel) do? I've seen pictures of UN spec Rs with both of those control banks filled and have always wondered what are these cool features that we're missing out on....

Hi Jared
That's a fog switch converted to energize the water meth injection system. It has a blue led that lights up only when the system turns on at 5.5# of boost. I added the light panel to distinguish it from the other switches. Next to it is a s70 antenna down switch, another rare switch! Good eye for noticing!

Congrats Dan! Proud to say I had this car in my driveway on a brief CT visit, and sent a few parts of mine to a good home in Michigan for this build as well ;)

Can't wait to see what you're up to next.

I'm also proud to be able to say I've seen this one in person, and it's every bit as amazing as it sounds. Dan has such amazing attention to detail…and is a remarkably nice guy to boot! Congrats on the sale (and purchase—whoever bought it)!
