I don't know about $800 but I for a good shop that would apply correct decals, Including the correct "Repaint Columbus" decal I am sure you will be looking at spending atleast $500+ and there might be quite a wait.
I'm not certain I could sell it for a profit with just a clean and tune; it really needs paint. I can get it painted pretty inexpensively, and decals are $50 on Ebay, so even if I could get $700 with a pseudo-resto, I'd feel fine with that. I'm looking to gain experience as much as I am to make money.
