When I did this mod, I had to drill holes in the MM and tap them for the screws for the SS backing plate. You need the best drill bit to get into the MM body.

I'll second that. I broke a drill bit trying to get through that case. I was trying to drill a pretty tiny hole. In the end, it just made more sense to drill it with a larger diameter (stronger) drill bit than I had originally set out to do.

Anybody ever found a cheaper, DIY way of turning the MM into a doserless grinder?

 You can save quite a bit of money by buying the doserless conversion kit from Phaelon Coffee as opposed to the site listed above.  Having used a converted Super Jolly side by side with a dosered SJ I much prefer the doser. Do the tape mod to the doser blades if its not sweeping clean enough, add the Schnoze to the outlet and you will have the best set up.
