I have just picked up a C5 from Reading to day it's not working and will need a lot of work doing to it. Pics will follow soon.

There's bound to be a ton of questions I'll have to ask as me and my dad have never striped down a C5  :-[

The body shell is in great condition but the rest is not

A bit dark  :-[ :-[











Hopefully it should turn out great.

I'll test to see if the pod works when I bring my C5 back round my house tonight.  ;) ;)

The seller says the electrics don't work and there's so much rust you can't peddle it. The original tiers are split  :-\ :-\

That rust is like a work of art! Don't fix it, hang it on your wall!
