You can’t add cloud-config to an existing droplet. Just destroy it and create a new droplet with your user-data.

Yeah, this sucks. Is there a feature request for this? Tweaking a script is going to be quite cumbersome with this workflow. And if any little thing changes requiring a tweak to the script, we have to destroy the droplet. Not good.
