Default Flexdrive v5 solder points for off-board pot?

I want to keep the on-board potentiometer in place for limiting and add an off-board pot for variability. Can anyone show me where I should solder on to v5 board? I know that the off-board pot needs to be in series with the limiting pot, I'm having a hard time following the traces. Or, if there was another post on this could someone point me in the right direction?

Mahalo,
Trevor

If the pot is used as a variable resistor (using 2 pins or shorting 2, same thing), then you can add your own pot in series with the pot onboard. But it's a bit hard to solder that small, do you need it to be that small?
