Host's Topic: Would you make a irreversible upgrade/mod to one of your retro computers?

Anything from adding a 3.5mm audio jack, “dremeling” a hole or slot in the case to feed a cable through. Cutting a trace, or adding a jumper or any other change that although could be “reversed”, but not to original condition . . . . How far would you go upgrading a retro machine?
