Has anyone ever modified a 72x24 stand for a 125 (72x 18)?

My used 180 I had setup for a 4 months sprung a leak in the seal. Considering the beastly nature of the 180 and a few other things (a reseal would be tricky on this tank becasue it has holes drilled in the bottom of the tank), I'm thinking I'd rather downsize to a 125 for weight considerations. The 180 is a beast to move even when empty. I'm not looking forward to dragging it in and out of the house again. But I have a decent oak stand that I'm thinking, with slight modifications, could safely hold a 125? Thoughts? Anyone done or seen this before?
