Vivitar 55mm 2.8 macro OM mount

I accidentally won this lens on ebay thinking it was PK mount, but it's actually OM mount. Ad was a little misleading, and the pictures were bad, but if I had paid more attention I would have caught it. But anyway I've read about the mod that RioRico does with his dremel and I'm thinking about modding this lens. Has anyone else done this mod? How is the aperture controlled after the mod? Will I need to focus stopped down? I use catch in focus a lot with my macro shots, will it still work with this mod?
