Well.I highly recommend against that operation, but I guess it is too late to stop you.
It's kinda like buying a Bechstein grand piano, cutting all of the strings out, smashing the keys with a sledge hammer, pulling the pedals out with a chain hooked to a Dodge Cummins, and then trying to play "Fur Elise" by Beethoven.
Chances are, you just ruined the instrument. Best of luck to ya.
Even though stuff is published on the internets, doesn't mean it's right, true, or even makes sense in the real world...
