    I have not. I would think if you had a metal brake (break?) (used to bend large pieces of sheet metal) and a pop riveter/spot welder it wouldn't be that hard. I myself am going to have to re-fabricate the entire center console dash piece since the people who owned the car before me broke off all the tabs that hold it together when they put in a stereo.
    If you're not paranoid, then you're not paying enough attention.

    I did it in a 1-din Clarion CD player. There are pics on my website.
