Well this is off topic, but the cost of doing a 175 conversion is high. If you're talking about visiting Fairbanks this is mostly because Dave S supplies brand new Cessna parts in his kit. If you're talking about visiting Porterville then it's because Harry D (RIP) was a crafty old coot of a businessman and needed to pay for a lot of big machinery and the room to operate itPS: I think there may be a market for a tail wheel conversion on a C-172. There is one available for my sons 175 but as you say it’s cost benefit numbers do not work out.
