Been meaning to update this. Got it fully working, if not fully pieced together, still haven't figured out the best way to attach the stock. But I got the linkage arm setup working!!!!!!
Linkage arm and trigger are attached:
And the front folds to allow assembly, and so you can see that the end of the linkage just pushes the actual tpx trigger. Dirty, and not at all sophisticated, but it works.
And this is what the top is hinging on, not actually attached, but held in place, and they can unscrew and be replaced by the normal screw that hold the frame together if i wanted to use it as a pistol.
And it allows me to remove all my mods and use it as a pistol still if i wanted!
You will notice that it looks a little funny though... Kinda sanded a bunch of features off. No more finger grooves, rail is no longer functional, and removed the point of the trigger guard.
You can kinda see the groove for linkage arm that I cut into the rail, works pretty well, but has a little too much friction right now, I need to figure out how to add a spring for just the linkage arm so the return doesn't rely on the actual TPX trigger. But I have faith. Do you?

And the current assembly:
I haven't scratched the g36 rail completely, and in fact it now screws directly onto the rail on top of the sl9 handguard. I just don't like it attached right now until i figure out how to shroud the actual TPX.
If your observant (Or simply not blind) you'll notice I cut in a giant hole in the side of the handguard, and it is for the 12 gram quick changer. And it works great, even if it does look awful.
I added a cheap fore grip, but I think I am going to spring for an AFG, I do think it will feel okay, and at least look better.
So now I'm going to work on improving the trigger pull, stock and the aesthetics. Mostly the aesthetics.
Whatcha think? Anybody have advice? Or ideas on the shrouding of the TPX? Does anybody hate it?
