Is there a ROM for Nexus 5 with security updates AND works with Google apps?

I would be happy to run ResurrectionRemix (Pie) but even the smallest GApps package from Open GApps fails to install because there's not enough space once RR is installed. TWRP reports around 48 MB available in the system partition.

Been using it since October 2018 as a daily driver for an old Nexus 5 phone n it's been serving me great
Regular security patches too (last was April 2019 for Pie)
Also takes GAPPs

Do repartition before.
Follow this https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...&postcount=190
Then flash RR and gapps.

chmbrnl: Thanks for the suggestion. I would have loved to try AOSP but couldn't find any site that actually provides AOSP ROM builds. I did see AOSPExtended - is that the one you mean? If not, can you tell me where the AOSP ROMs are available?

srepole: Thanks for your suggestion. I was hesitant to follow the procedure you referenced, which calls for installing somebody's modified TWRP recovery from an unknown (at least to me) Mega account and then running a script whose author is also unknown to me. But since I knew of no other option for getting a system that met my requirements, I took your advice and followed the procedure. And as far as I can tell it worked perfectly and my durable ol' Nexus 5 is up and running RR Pie and GApps like a champ!

Thanks to both of your for your input and help!

AOSP (#1) not AOSP Extended (#2)
That's (#2) something different
For AOSP (#1) by Unlegacy Android Project, download it at https://notredame.app.box.com/s/26a4...8xr5evomvaw5ww
Open with a desktop browser or enable desktop mode if on mobile
The CAF version works smoother than the non-CAF version
