Contemplating options to sell track FD

I have been rebuilding a fairly high spec track FD with full 6 speed sequential gearbox, borg warner 83/74 on a heavy street port. Life has moved on since taking the project on and have reached a point where I am considering options. The car has had a significant amount of money spent on it as listed below. If anyone is seriously interested please send a PM and I can discuss further.

I have been asked by several people if the gearbox is for sale. I am definitely not looking to split the car.

The car was originally built by the previous owner for GT cup/ time attack events.
I have attached some pictures of it from before my ownership but give you a good idea of overall build (apologies for the poor resolution will get some others loaded later).

I remember his car well, great spec. It was such a shame what happened to it in the end before you brought it.
If you decide to break it let me know about the gearbox and ancillaries
 
How much has been repaired since the fire? Was the car re-shelled? Anything that was burned replaced?
There was fortunately only cosmetic damage to a localised area in the engine bay adjacent to the oil leak. The engine bay was completely stripped and fully repainted.
The engine loom was damaged and has been fully replaced as part of the new ECU install, other than that a few hoses and a brake reservoir, again all replaced with new.
