in short it would cost more than new stove probably. not only would you have to deal with pilot gas coming in by capping it or something you would have to purchase and design your own ignition system for lighting unless you intend to manually light with a match or lighter or that case just cap off the lines that run to the pilots. and seal them up. and then use a match or lighter.
