Hi, for those of you who want to keep their C5s as close as possible to the original. I have noticed in many photos of C5s posted in the IN that the rear frame cable protectors are missing. http://i1077.photobucket.com/albums/w477/XE521/RearFrameCableProtector_zps2b643aca.jpg These are fitted to the rear of the Y, top and bottom on the LHS, top only (behind the CB) on the RHS. They can be obtained from a good stationery shop at a very low price. The originals are 16cm long, those from the stationery shop approx. 28cm. They can be cut with a SHARP knife, but I recommend that you clip it to a piece a stable cardboard to stop splitting during cutting. I also recommend that you glue the clips in place to prevent further loss.

Anyone know who sinclair-c5-products is I posted about this item in the forum just a couple of days ago and bingo they appear in ebay.co.uk. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sinclair-C5-genuine-rear-frame-chassis-cable-protectors-/161565290286?&_trksid=p2056016.l4276 He/she has no feedback as yet, so must be a newcomer. I can assure you that I payed a fraction of this price from the stationers.

Here's an example of the item I mentioned, they are referred to as 'Slide Binders': http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/5-x-A4-Slide-Binders-5mm-x-297mm-in-Black-for-Home-Office-Schools/380967605863?rt=nc There are others advertised, mainly in boxes of 50 or a 100 items, but take care not to order anything over 5mm otherwise there will be problems with clamping. A couple of small points. From one binder you can make two protectors, and secondly they are the same as the protectors advertised in ebay, but a lot cheaper.
