Just for future reference, what is the cost of re-sleeving your own cylinder?

FWIW , I had my Mk2's done about 10 years ago with a stainless sleeve. in New Zealand. Came complete with new seals and fully assembled. At the time was told if you have problems just clean it with a rag and fit new seals. Never had to. Mine is a tandem cylinder so a much cheaper option than a replacement.
