I talked about this back in the day with my friend who had a IIe. It didn't make much sense because the cost then was almost the same as getting a IIGS on its own, and you still didn't quite have the same functionality. It was an usual upgrade to say the least. The modern version you linked to looks like a hassle as well.

Apple offered a kit for this called the II3 to IIgs Conversion.
It was not a popular seller as it was very close to the cost of a complete IIgs, and you still needed to buy a mouse.
I always thought it was cool so I build what I wished HAD existed:
I used an original IIe to IIgs Kit
Replaced the IIe upper case with a IIe Platinum setup
Installed an UltimateMicro Power Supply upgrade
Paint the pan bottom Platinum
Added some cards:
