Hi All

Some new Pictures ;D, I have put the first coat of topcoat on and have now wired in the lighting electrics running off a seperate battery, need to wait for more paint to come in then will be adding a few more coats then will be adding laqer and decals so apart from making the enclosed faring its more or less road worthy another one of these amazing machines saved :D

It's always nice to see another one saved  ;)

Lovin that colour - blue seems to suit the C5 really well  8)

Have you "road tested" thew beastie yet ? Curious if the performance is as good as you were hoping for.

Whatever its performance , it is looking good mate  :)

Hey Booboo

Thanks mate, yeah blue does really suit them! :D, Yeah ive taken it out today all day and the performance is excellent!!,got a lot of thumbs ups and nods people love the c5! :D It tackles some pretty steep inclines, and with the distributed weight goes along really good no slip or grip problems so performance is spot on! I am going to post some youtube videos of it in action so people can see how well it handles preforms etc

I have also decided to call her "Offset" :D I hope this is not already taken

really nice,

imho the finishing touch with this colour would be a pair of retro chrome wheel 'spinners' for the rear wheels, as were very popular in the late 70's early 80's on sportier looking cars.
