There was a guy on another forum that did this and it looked good.
Yeah, I have seen that done too. Pretty easy for body shop guy that welds and knows what he's doing.

The problem with just cutting holes a calling it day is it looks bad and cheesy. You would need to roll the edges and fabricate the mounting tabs. See pic.
