    I've been searching but I can't find an answer.

    I found a late 2008 Aluminum unibody macbook and got it working great. Only issue is the two piece base plate is really messed up and I was wondering if the newer style one plate from the macbook pros would be interchangeable.

    Thanks in advance for your answers.

    It would not fit, since the late 2008 aluminium MacBook Pro has a two part bottom plate, one for the battery and one for the rest.
    Since 2009 the battery is not meant to be replaced by the user, thus there is only one panel in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 MBPs.
