restoring my first C5
« on: 12, June, 2011 - 22:36:51 »
Hello all!!

i just wanted to show my progress  8)
i bought the C5 at terrible condition
it was used at a amusement park years ago.....
they cutted the rear of the chassie  :-\
so i got another one....but is was torn...

and welded terrible  >:(

but i grinded it and welded it a bit better and strengthened it a bit

and put new bearings in all of the moving parts....with fresh grease....and
of course a paint job

now the body needs is painted in several colors... ???

Also the left rear wheel has worn wobbles on the axle a bit  ???
is this a familiar problem? how to solve it??

thanks for watching  8)

Neither of the wheels should wobble , can you show a close up photo of the problem side so we can try and see what the problem is ? Sometimes previous owners dismantle them and either wrongly re-assemble them or leave some parts out altogether  :o
