John -

Before you pull the gearbox - if your only symptom is 'won't go into gear'
-- you may want to check how much movement you're getting at the slave
cylinder.  If the slave & fork are moving ½" or a bit more then it may well
be a broken fork pin.  But if you are not seeing good movement then the
problem may lie elsewhere (and be easier to deal with).

As for paint -- $3,000 for a decent paint job would be cheap where I live.
