-I guess the obvious course of action would be to buy a 95% camera, then use parts from the 80% one to make the former 100% (Or at least 99%...)

Bargains do come by every now and then - so I guess if one took a longer-term approach, one could get a number of F bodies on the cheap, just in case one should ever need the parts.
