IMO the better plan is to build a cheaper version of the slab-surfaced Touratech plate. It seems a clean and rugged design for hard rock contact, yet simple to manufacture. Those of us that like the rallye-style rounded plates would probably stick with the stocker. On the other hand, if you come up with an inexpensive piece that strengthened (or replaced) the cast aluminum section of the stocker and retained the stock shaped plastic sides, you could probably sell a few.
