I think the prices are too high and with the cad dollar not as high as it used to be... it's not worth it. The best deals are still to deal with your local canuck. I would think all these things would have to be in your favor for a nice outcome: - High CAD dollar - A-list pin priced low enough with room to recoup costs - pin that is rare enough and doesn't come up for sale often to make it worthwhile - luck, in that our European operator friends did not totally abuse the pin and hacked together repairs. I got lucky with one of the early containers and got a really nice TZ (goes to show how well TZ does on route!), which gave me the confidence to go for a second one - a Road Show. That one involved a lot more work than I anticipated. I recall around that time I bought mine 2 people who getting rid of their container pins as soon as they got it since it was way more work than they anticipated. I think I read about a CV on the other board and a fellow RS buyer who did not want theirs and listed them as they were total basketcases or too much work. I'll try to revive my old thread which I never updated!
