Thanks a ton for your response, after actually testing them out I have found that the arms make the bed rock solid.
To get this cut yes it's a reasonable price but you don't need the additional support with bottle works arms. If you just want to get rid of the wood you would be best to stick with the original design without my support ribs. Those support arms are just because it uses wood that gets weak when hot and bends. An aluminum bottom wouldn't need it and the aluminum arms hold the wood so well it wouldn't flex if you tried. In other words bottle works arms negate the need for this but at a higher cost.
So I just checked to see how much it would cost to have these cut out of 3/16" (4.76 mm) 5052 aluminum for $155. 1. would this work? 2. does this seem like a reasonable deal. I just installed bottleworks's aluminum arms (http://www.thingiverse.com/thi..., so I figured why not go all aluminum.

You will need 6 M3 16mm bolts & nuts. Disassemble and replace the main plate. I've included the two back plates and the front plate because I found the orginial files were not the same as the shipping model of the Replicator so I updated them to match and I modified the back to be more Replicator2 styled. Just cut it all out on a laser cutter with 5mm plywood.
I also added a center hole up front so if you want to modify your HBP to 3 point its ready to go.
If you want one of these in a kit form let me know I can do it for $25 which includes shipping if you're in the USA.
