Speaking of restoration costs, has anyone here ever posted a line by line breakdown of what it costs to completely restore a CS? PFSlim's comes to mind as a relatively recent complete restoration. SomethingSpecial is also in the process.
I completely understand if it's one of those taboo topics that people REALLY would rather not discuss. But I think it would give those folks who are contemplating doing a complete resto and starting by purchasing a CS that needs a LOT of work (like the one on the first post of this thread) some place to start from.

My personal experience with just looking into getting a nice paint job on my CS was a $5K-$6K estimate!!! Needeless to say, it's not getting painted anytime soon and I'm happy with it being a 15 footer.
