Custom Tipx shroud.

So i have this custom shroud i made for my buddy's tipx, i need to come up a way to make a folding stock, want it so it folds over the top (not to the side), i have seen several out there but am stuck on how to make the locking mechanism for the stock when it is unfolded and folded.
As for the stock i was thinking of using 3/4"x 1/8" aluminum But i am open to ideas.

this is what i have so far:




Update pics, removed some material to lighten it up and make it a little slim lined.

So, where are you going with this shroud? You might be able to make a shroud to hold an airsoft spas 12 stock (or something cheaper). That shroud is a nice base for lots of stuff. You could also do a telescoping "wire" stock (US M3 style). Look at a bunch of uzi pics; there's a few variations that might fit for you.
