As a DIY'r to the core, I can still agree with this market observation.

To the OP (Charles): If resale was a real possibility, I would consider leveraging a nameplate shop for a top-end rebuild for buyer comfort just as you originally posed. I'd bet 95% of buyers never heard of Pelican and our high Midi-chlorian Jedi skills. If you do go that route, I would still do what you can (engine R&R, intake/exhaust R&R) to lessen their scope of work while still getting the "rebuilt-by" receipt.
