Well done! As long as it works, no one is going to look inside and complain that it doesn't look "professional." I agree with your philosophy (save money and don't add more to the land fill).

Another solution which dawned on me as I read your post is to use a 3D printer to make new trays. My daughter built a "PrintrBot" from a kit for her chiropractor that was just sitting in a box in his office. He gave her 3 free visits for her work. She brought it home one weekend and we made a few toys. I did not think of making trays at the time.

Thanks! Using a 3D printer would sure be cool but not many have access to one and to make this CD tray, you'd need a pretty high resolution 3D printer as well as ability to model this part in some CAD program. Local MicroCenter store got some 3D printers and I think they all start at over a kilodollar. It was definitely cool seeing their demo print something, at least I knew what it was but so many people had no idea and were totally fascinated.

Glad it worked out! I have been procrastinating with my radio... Really need to figure out how to fix it and the forums are not proving to be much help. Basically when I press "disc" button nothing happens at all (it stays on the same mode as before tape, am, or fm).
