SSD upgrade for 2012 27" iMac ?

Okay I've seen people getting their 27" iMac and RAM upgrades but I've not seen any thread on aftermarket upgrade of SSD in 27" iMac. Any owner of 27" iMac tried it or it is not possible to upgrade SSD in 27" iMac ?

There is a long running thread on folks already doing this:

Thanks I thought that one was for 21" only. I think it would be great if mods allow sticky post for specific instructions.

Yes the thread starts with the 21" mods but, I believe those performing upgrades on the 27" are in there as well. It's a catch all thread for 2012 iMac upgrades.

Thats my reason for waiting until things settle and all parts / kits are available before I proceed to open it up.
