Thanks for the comments.
Congrats Rafael, looks like a near mint copy; when it arrives, please post shots taken with the lens;
Welcome back Peter, and what great panos are you posting with the 28/2.8; keep them coming - but you need to clean your sensor
Last weekend I made an effort to CPU'd five of my beloved MF Nikkors.
These are models that do not need any machining, just a little glue:
Left to right:
Nikkor-UD 20mm f/3.5 F ai'd; Nikkor-OC 35mm f/2 F ai'd; Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 K factory ai'd; Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 AI-S; Nikkor-QC 135mm f/3.5 F ai'd.

The work is pretty simple, less than 5 min for gluing each chip, and less than 10 min for programing each CPU/lens. The vendor of these chips in Singapore is very reliable and I got a good price - less than USD 27.00 for each cpu.
The site from Thomas Pindelski is simply awesome as a guide:
