New 5ft Tank Project. Modifying bracing?

Hi all,
Its been a very long time since I posted here. I doubt any of you would remember me!

I've got my hands on a Rena tank 5ftx2ftx20inches.
One thing I dont like about the tank is the aluminium bracing and trim.

Does anybody know what my options are for removing this and replacing with a more traditional glass eurobracing system? Is this risky, better left as is etc etc?

Any help would be great to get me under way with this project as at the moment the tank is sitting in the shed at the bottom of the garden.
