If you are really thorough, you would have kept those round clear stickers they used to keep opening parts shut and methodically place each and every one of them back in their original positions.Ahead of a move next year (hence my recent decorating spree), I’ve started the long (and completely boring) task of reattaching my diecasts to their bases. It’s a lot fiddler than taking them off, that’s for sure, especially when there are a couple of attaching plates. For instance, my Norev R5 GT Turbo and I had strongly opposing views as to how it was going back on its base. Noting its recalcitrance, I’ve made a mental note to shove it as far back in a storage area as I can once I’ve moved.
These two things amused me. I noticed my white Aa Toyota GT86 had a code label that was peeling. Curious to see what was underneath, I peeled it off to see the original label for an orange GT. Either I’ve got the wrong box, or the wrong diecast.
I was also amused by the ‘best before’ date on the XJS. I’d not noticed that before. I didn’t know diecasts could go off
That’s ten diecasts now safely repacked. I’ve only got about another 120 to go…

Freezer storage is the biggest instigator of zinc pest. So I've heard the rumor...Maybe you should put it in the freezer to keep it "fresh"! (Oops, I see that it's already stale and "expired"! Oh well ........)
