Default How to reset phone incl internal?

Hi, I'm selling my Nexus 5 ( ) so I'd know how to reset it, including wiping everything off internal storage.
But the buyer would like to have it on a custom ROM, so what do I do?
I think I'm supposed to just wipe cache, d.cache, data and internal storage? Yes?

TIA!

Go to settings/backup and restore and select data factory reset. That`s it.
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue
