Announcing myself. Hi I am Peter and I am the owner of GB038. Just joined, but owned the vehicle (registration RBV 998) for over 10 years.

Yes it is being done by Graham Archibald at Retroworks in Scotland. I am eagerly watching updates too. Galvanised chassis (stamped with original chassis number) arrived to be primed and black stone chipped. Axles and suspension components being galvanised and painted back to original black too.
