Help adding a Pivot Range to following code:

Hi,
I am hoping that somebody will be able to help me. I would like to add a range around the Pivot in the code below. The math for that range is (yesterday's high + yesterday's low) /2. Then you subtract that from the pivot value (high+low+close)/3 and it gives you a value. Then you add that value to the pivot and you have an upper range. Then you subtract that value from the pivot to get the lower range. So the new study will plot exactly the same as the code below but will also plot 2 additional horizontal lines forming a pivot range .
Thanks.
Code
[LegacyColorValue = true];
{based on intraday data (is sometimes a little different than daily data, so won't match exact)}
{idea is that it will change each day @ "NewDayTM", to reflect the next days numbers.}
{..check the open/close values to verify the day it's showing. It seems to work}
{always posting 1 bar behind, since must be NO on "update value intra-bar"}
{The indicator has an input called PivotType. Use 3 or 4 as PivotType and you should get the Settlement Price,
since when PivotType = 3 or 4, the CloseD function is used. The CloseD will return the settlement price. }

I think I'd be able to figure it out but I'm not sure exactly where to add in the code that I want.
