Thank You. I took mine for a walk already. Maybe I will add some legs with wheels to the to-do list :D. LCD would be great upgrade too!

It do not have to be strictly 40W or 80W ... Look for eg. here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/LED-Strip-Light-LED-Driver-Power-Supply-Transformer-AC-110-260V-DC-12V-/161769013165?var=&hash=item25aa2f3fad - see the Specifications in the middle of the page. The 60W, 100W and 120W PSU have the supported sizes. And this is not the only eshop that has them.

You can definitely manage, but I was trying to keep it as small as possible. For 159x99x38mm PSU you would have to use PSU2 setup (129x99x38mm version described in Instructions - Frame) and make all rods parallel with X axis 30mm longer. That means threaded rods for legs would have to be M8x210mm 4 pcs, X axis threaded rods M8x295mm 3 pcs and X axis smooth rods dia. 8mmx285mm 2 pcs. For Y axis it will remain the same - threaded rods M8x265mm 2 pcs and smooth rods dia. 8mmx245mm 2 pcs. The distance between Z1 and Z2 would be 160mm. The distance between Z1,2 and front legs will stay 128mm.

My only concern is about Arduino and RAMPS. I am not sure if such long PSU would have mounting holes close enough, so the PCB mounting can still hold electronics on place.
