Just to chime in on this... projects like this get a lot of free parts and skills. The kinds of people that have these parts and skills are not the ones hoarding them to make money off them. They are temporary custodians of something they know will be really important to someone someday, so they hold on to it.

The value is in the whole plane. Not in a weird one-off left-sided P51 canopy.
