Been scouring (pardon the pun) shops and EBay for either Ajax or Vim to clean my C5, Didn't want to pay EBay prices for Vim but couldn't find it in any of the local supermarkets. By chance I called in a small local shop to ask the question, and tucked away on his shelves was the elusive Vim at £1.49 a canister. Pushed the boat out and bought 3, I was going to buy all his stock but was conscious of his looks. Three vim, must be a big job.

Looking a lot cleaner after a little elbow grease and a little Vim and pink stuff. It's what Sundays were made for. This is the C5 I bought from St Helens a couple of weeks ago after it had been standing outside for many years, next job is to tidy the shell up as there are a few scratches and black marks that need attention. Chassis comes next followed by the electrics. Wheels with new tyres and tubes already done. This one will be for sale when complete and running
