UDS Build Plans, Parts List, and Ideas
 
I was hoping to build a UDS this weekend and wanted to get some plans, part lists, or other ideas. I know that we have that giant UDS thread but I was hoping (if we don't already have it) we make a thread that simply has links to plans and part lists to build one. Maybe even your favorite tutorials or videos on how to build a UDS.

Thoughts? Anyone have any UDS plans, part lists, videos, or tutorials they can share with a beginner like me?
