Or this one on eBay for $800 BIN with a bunch of accessories (although no description).

EDIT: Whoops, forgot the link.

Replacement of the sensor would be pretty similar to this (Steps 1 through 10):

Life Pixel doesn't have a DIY tutorial on modification of the 1Ds Mark II.

......... why do i need to pay for an estimate? Why do I pay $100 to Canon every year?" Canon in Newport is CR@p!

Don't see anything about free estimates in there, which is probably why you were charged, I'd hardly call that crap service, but then some people have very strange ideas about contracts with corporations.

If you are brave (I would do it), there is a 1Ds II on eBay now for $750 ($1000 buy it now) with a broken shutter you could steal the sensor from.  Cheaper than a new FF camera.

That has a scratched sensor filter and so has zero value to the OP. Not saying it isn't a smart idea, and even if you didn't want to DIY it you could give them both to a camera repair shop to swap a sensor out, the main problem repair shops have is getting parts, if you can buy them yourself then it makes this still very capable gear repairable.
Never look down on anybody, unless you are helping them up.

There was a 1Ds II that came up on gumtree (uk craigslist) for £540 with 9000 actuations on it and that looked completely mint. It was gone before I had time to react :(

As for the OP though, that repair quote was ridiculous

I can see if you paid full retail of $8k back in early 2005 for the 1Ds Mark II and trying to keep it.  If not, just get a new camera.  There are tons of models available today for way cheaper that are much better.  The technology has improved a lot and the tech has also become cheaper.  After my sides stopped aching from laughing reading Canon's quote, I just thought to myself, what would I do?  I'd probably go for a 6D as my studio camera.

If I got a repair quote like that, I'd probably go with a Nikon next time.  Just saying.

Do you expect Nikon to have lower repair prices for old equipment? I have never heard that that would be the case

"Don't see anything about free estimates in there, which is probably why you were charged, I'd hardly call that crap service, but then some people have very strange ideas about contracts with corporations."

The thing is, that a huge company like Canon shouldn't have the need to hide fees from a loyal member that pays to be a member. It's like insurance. You only know what you get when you really need it! From the link you provided you cannot find the cost for them to open your camera and tell you what your camera problem is. $150 just to open your camera. Really? Canon CPS is CR@ap! A company from Seattle gave me a $1400 cost for this same service and they give warranty for their service just like Canon and I didn't have to pay anything upfront nor am I a member of their store. I am pretty sure this store would have no problems to give me a 30% if I send them a $100 check every year.
