I wondered if it was Christmas and Easter myself

That's a great start, I haven't seen a G11 in use since 1983. I remember it had Teletext and an ultrasonic remote.
EDIT- Wow! It looks superb. Well done.

It didn't look bad at all did it....
but now another niggle has cropped up, everything now has a red hue on it.

It has dropped the Green,
Check for dry joints on the colour decoder/RGB panel, there are 3 RGB output transistors mounted on to a heatsink, these are commonly dry jointed.
In fact I would go over the entire set, we used to do a "blanket solder" job on these as they were usually riddled with D/J everywhere.
Re: the Frame chip socket, the early socket used on this chassis did fail as you say "chip side", the replacement socket was a modified type (ceramic instead of plastic IIRC), as your set still had the red cap it is likely that it also has the original frame IC socket.
Make sure you remove the ALL old heatsink compound from both the chip and the heatsink and apply fresh compound to the chip when/if you replace the socket C/O Malc.
The dodgy socket can destroy the TDA 2600 chip.
