Could have done with this two years ago  ;) Really good Chas and you make it look really easy, you must have watched a lot of blue peter when you was younger ?

I'd be be very interested in any tips restoring scuffs and gauges in the shell. I have the yellow C5 with a chunk is missing from the nose, I also have a spare shell, scuffed and gauged fairly heavily, and a spare chassis with forks, and spare motor. Been hoovering up cheap parts to eventually make a restore third C5

Plan is to clean up the spare chassis and and as much as possible the spare shell, making a 'nice one' out of all the bits from the yellow C5, Then doing the same on my other bog standard C5, ending up with a clean C5 chassis and spares, on the run so to speak.

You can see how very helpful your video will be :).

Just started to build up the C5 that is on Youtube .....As you will see that all the parts have been cleaned and ready for rebuilding ...
This one will be  as close to the original  as safety will allow (But I will have to fit new tyres and new brake cables ) the Key switch will be refitted and a new battery + the batt top will also fitted and of course all the bearings will be replaced if worn and re greased
