    Hello,

    About a month ago, I remember encountering a site that gave illustrated how-to's for making a "homemade" FlipTop for your PS2 using the preexisting cover.

    However, after "googling" forever, I still can't find it anymore. I shoul have bookmarked it!

    Presently, I actually purchased a F/T but I was going to try and make one out of my OEM cover since it's doing no other good right now.

    Thanks!

    Just incase you didn't know how to install it,
    1. Unplug PS2 and place your PS2 console on a table or flat surface.
    2. Remove 90-day warranty sticker located on the back of the PS2 HERE.
    3. Turn the PS2 console over face-down on the table.
    4. Remove these screw covers and screws based on your version PS2.
    5. Set PS2 console face-up, and carefully remove top cover like THIS.
    6. The PS2 should now be in front of you as displayed HERE.
    7. Unscrew the 4 tiny screws on the CD/DVD drive tray cover and lift it off.
    8. Remove the white disc from the tray cover itself and insert it in the Flip-Top lid.
    9. Unscrew this screw from retainer plate and remove Memory Card port covers.
    10. Re-attach them to Flip-Top Cover and secure retainer plate with its screw.
    11. Remove RESET/EJECT harness like THIS and screw it to the Flip-Top Cover.
    12. Slowly slide Flip-Top Cover on PS2 making sure NOT to pinch RESET/EJECT wires.
    13. Turn PS2 face-down and replace screw covers and screws based on your model.
    14. Your PS2 console should now look like THIS- great work and enjoy!.
