Manual Trans. Grinds Rebuild?

I am looking about buying my first diesel. I am considering one OBS 350 which has something wrong with the clutch / tranny. The owner says it grinds when downshifting so he double clutches it. IIRC he said it grinds on up shifts if you shift really fast.

So it sounds like it needs new syncros. Has anyone had a shop do this rebuild for them before? how much money was spent and what were you lessons learned?

Also I think it am capable of rebuilding it myself with the help of some of my co-workers. Has anyone tackled this themselves? I would most probably drop the tranny in my driveway and rebuild it in my garage. How much money have people spent hear on rebuilding the syncros? Should I plan on doing bearings too? Should I expect some of the gears need replaced?

Mileage is roughly 200,000 miles.

Thanks for your help in advance.
