Question Auction product for vBulletin 3.6

Hello, I'm looking for a vBulletin product, which transforms a forum into an auction, rather than adding separate functionality. I am currently considering to make this a paid request, but would first hear some opinions (paid projects cannot be discussed in that area).

I've tried some of the paid, and some of the free add-ons/plugins/products, but none of them transform the forum to an auction system.

I would like:
  • to allow any registered member to post new auctions, as if they were simple posts (and basicly they are, except for additional fields in the editor);
  • to allow any registered member to bid, and eventually buy instantly;
  • to list and expire auctions automaticly, by using a cronjob or similar;
  • to allow payment with any of the inbuilt payment engines, but at least with PayPal
  • to notify bidders if they were outbid, or won the auction;
  • to allow to use the reputation system for: reputation ... maybe a little more advanced;
  • to keep it as easy as possible;
I imagine, besides some hooks, it will need quite some style changes (postbit, editor, forum listing templates), to view the items correctly.

Do you think this project is do-able, and about how much time would it take?
