Hiding a PS2 inside a PS1 case.

I have an interesting proposal for you all. I am interested in putting all of the hardware from a PS2 into a PS1 case. I want this for a friend of mine who cannot have a PS2 where he is. Is there anyone who has done this, or has any ideas that would help me?
I have been told by one person that the hardware will never fit, but I've seen the crazy things people on here can do, so I thought I ask you all.
Thank you

It would take quite a bit of modding but the last gen of slim ps2's would probably fit. I just saw some old ps1's at the thrift store for super cheap.
