Cheeky update on the GT.
A liberal application of Acetone later and the rattle can paint is virtually off - was pleasantly surprised to find all original decals almost completely intact underneath. It will take some time to fully strip and polish, plus repair chips/scratches but it's now looking very much more like a worthy project.

Hiya.

I’m interested in the Trekker if Corblimeygov drops out.

Will PM you but it’s conditional that of you ever want it back you can have it :-)
