Do you get your money back when adding an overlay?

So my high speed playfield is fairly worn. Not horrible, I've seen much worse, but far from good.
Plays well, I have a set of cpr playfield plastics still new, all leds, freeplays clear ramp installed.
One segment out on ball or player (one on the right, forgot).

I missed the preorder for a playfield because I figured there would be extras, my bad.
Most that want to sell one they aren't using are marked up, which I wouldn't do, but I get it.

I like the pin, but i'm already upsidedown on it and don't want to get too much worse.

A worn playfield donor is about $100, then the overlay is $200.

The question is, if I put another $300 into it, will I get that money back?
Right now I feel like it's a $950 pin.

The reason I would use a donor playfield is because I really hate having anything I own not working. Would minimize down time, so I could prep then swap.
