any luck? i've been looking at how to's for flip-flop trunks and there is alot of differences with our trunks but i've been looking at mine and i believe that i've figured out a way to do it. mechanical engineering background coming through. when i get some time i'm gonna try it. if it works i'll post a diy of how i did it and what it looks like. if not i may just hook up with one of my buddies that owns a full machine shop and fab one up.
