Still possible to upgrade from Mk1?

Is there still an upgrade path available from the Mk1 1.75mm to the Mk2 or Mk3? I was just looking around and noticed the shop has a listing for Mk1->Mk2 upgrade, but it is no longer purchasable. Is there any other way, perhaps a parts list to replace or would I just be out of luck at this point?

I don't think it make sense cost wise. But please report back how much it will cost if it's possible.
My advise will be to get a new MK3 and have two printers.

The Mk1 to Mk2 upgrade was the best value-for-money upgrade PR has offered.

The Mk2 is still a very good printer, and that's what you get with that upgrade.

Still, the price was $350 for the upgrade. For $599.00 you can get a new MK2S (and a second printer so to say)
That's why I would go for the second option.
