you could always raise the entire floor so that the bed is not as deep. this will get rid of the ugly protrusion in the bed.

Why is it ghetto? Sheet metal is sheet metal. I think it's bad ass to make your own shit. I hate paying for someone elses shitty work and having to fix it anyway. Besides I am not Jewish and am not in 1940's Poland.
