Hi and welcome to the forum Can I just ask, how the heck did you come about 10 of them?? Going from your photos, most of them look pretty much complete, would you mind me using one of your pics on our gallery page? It certainly is a sight, that many of them together Anyway, feel free to post your progress with this (huge) restoration project and if you need any help with repairing them, let us know!

Of course mate use any of the pics you want no problem, I think I'm going to need plenty of advice on this project to be honest, each one seems to have problems that need sorting. I've ended up with 10 basically because I'm a vocational manager and run a rehab placement for guy's with acquired brain injury, we wanted a project for the guy's to work on that they can ultimately enjoy the results of regardless of any disabilities etc. and the C5's seemed to be the perfect choice and our director who purchased them for us is a top bloke and certainly doesn't do things by halves, initially we where going to get two or three but some how ended up at ten!. We've started on the two roughest ones just to get an idea of the worst of what we'll encounter. One observation of the 1st two is we have had to weld and reinforce the chassis around the rear axel areas
