I looked into doing this, and I have the tools to do it. But honestly for $34.00 or less for a set, it beats cutting, bending, welding, drilling, chamfer the holes, sanding, priming, painting, and making sure all lines up.
And don't forget about those dang Torx head screws. What a PITA they can be getting them out.
But hey if you have access to the tools go for it.
