First 235 Genoa Cars

Has anyone changed from the stop pin system to adjustable car system? Anyone just pull the pin from the existing car and add control blocks? Would like to see what others have done.

I got a couple of cheek blocks, fairleads, and a couple PXR's from Santa (GF) so I am going to give this a shot. Can always use the hardware for something else if it doesn't quite work.

If it doesn't I will of course have to get cars for the track ($$). Anyone out there know off hand what the width of the track is? I measured once back when the water was still in liquid form but I can't recall how wide it was. I am thinking it was wider than 22mm though. The Bene parts site is lacking in any info on that.
