As of October 2018, work is continuing on 798 and it is now beginning to look like a DG bus once again. The body and roof has been rubbed-down and undercoat applied whilst, internally, the side walls are being re-covered with moquette.
The floor covering is being renewed and many of the seats are having to be re-covered. All of the seat frames, stanchions and fittings have been repaired, stripped and re-painted. Mechanically, the bus is now in good order with no major jobs still to be done. It is hoped that 798 will make an appearance at the 2019 DG100 events
