The used market for the HH2 is pretty good and I wanted a trem anyway, so I decided to scrap the project and use the funds to order a brand new Kiesel HH2X.
In theory, I have no doubts that it can be done. Removing the fret yourself will be the biggest pain. Followed by getting the nut slotted with enough meat left to have the height adjusted.

The saddles were free, because Hipshot was replacing them directly. They sent me a set of 6 after I explained how the wound strings had impressed on the saddles, too.

Do or do not; there is no understand.

The reason for this is that it was never stated to be a recall by Kiesel, and that it was just a "retrofit," for those who didn't like the zero fret; to say nothing of those who had pings/pops and gouges in their ZF.
Ahh...ok, thinking back I think you're right on the "free" part not being free, but I remember it being $50, and that included the return shipping (plus your cost of shipping it to them)...but that may have included just a finite period of time.
