Citroën BX – XPO – Donor Panel A-Pillar Repair - Eps20 In this article, I tackle an inner A-pillar repair to the donor body panel. Now the Mega Shed is built, I can plough on with the XPO project. https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2022/06/XPO_Pt20_Intro.png https://bxproject.co.uk/blo...

Citroën BX – XPO – Welding Repair of the Scuttle Pt2 At last, the final scuttle repair can begin. This seems like a simple piece to weld in, but for the next panel to align, it needs to be neat. https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/BX_Scuttle2_12_800.jpg https://bxproject.co.uk/b...

Re: Chinese Aluminium Radiator

Holy thread resurrection Dave, nearly 8 years old.

On the flip side, I hopefully have many of these rads on a boat headed to the UK.

Re: Who's on the road (or could be), who is Not?

Another year of MOT and tax for me. Needed a bit of fettling which had to be outsourced but otherwise a clean sheet; https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/citroen-bx-pre-show-season-maintenance/ Also made it out to the first show of the season, the CC X-Rally https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/car-show-x-rally-202...

After putting it off for far too many years, the forum has finally been updated to PHPBB 3.3.7 (current available) and the SQL version updated to 7.4. This resolves issues with posting, and the 'contact us' feature.

Re: The BX Project

Citroën BX – XPO – Welding the Scuttle Pt1 With the suspension turret repaired, I could turn my mind to making repair pieces and welding up the scuttle. Using the highly technical process of CAD. https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/BX_Scuttle1_20_800.jpg https://bxproject.co.uk/...

Re: The BX Project

Citroën BX - XPO - Welding the Suspension Turret Non-structural repairs seemed a good place to start the welding on XPO. But rot in the suspension turret panel soon changed that! I don't claim to be a welding hero or perfectly neat, but it's functional and better than the rot it replaces https://bx...

Citroën BX – XPO – Repair Panel Body Cut Before I can put the engine back into XPO, I need to tackle the bodywork. I'll need to take a body cut from another, but how much will I need? https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/BX_XPO_Cut_01_800.jpg https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/citroen-...

Thinking of using AutoDoc? You might want to read this first!

I still see the odd negative report of AutoDoc, something that put me off for a long time. Having been using AutoDoc for BX parts for over a year now, they have become something of a lifeline for all of the cars. Maybe my experience will help you make your own mind up? https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/w...

Re: The BX Project

Citroën BX – XPO – Building The Mi16 Bottom End Continued When I last wrote about the rebuild of the engine for XPO, the project was at a bit of a low point. A host of things were absorbing my "free time". Then when I did get a moment, it wasn't exactly plain sailing. Admittedly snapping ...

Re: The BX Project

Citroën BX – XPO – Building The Mi16 Bottom End A month since building the cylinder, I had to get on with building the bottom end. A few parts to clean and put together. How hard can it be? It should be plain sailing unless I do something really stupid. https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploa...
