Car Show - FotU 2022 - My Highlights After weeks of turmoil with the BX, I wondered if it would even make it to FotU 22. But it did, and the festival was fantastic. After a few weeks' delay, finally, I can regale you with my show experience! https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/F...

Re: The BX Project

After all those changes and fixes, the car actually made it to and from Festival of the Unexceptional, without any issues! I've since discovered a mild coolant leak as a result of a piss poor hose clamp, but otherwise, she's been just fine. Not sure if that's luck, or maybe I know vaguely what I'm d...

Citroen BX - FotU 2022 Prep - Fuel Leak Before I set off to this year's Festival of the Unexceptional, I wanted to trace a fluid leak near the engine. But first, the Citroen BX had a rather major fuel leak! Amazed I even made it. https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/BX-Fuel-Leak....

Re: The BX Project

The interlude didn't go unnoticed Vanny, I wondered what was happening. I just read through it all and then lower down, saw your car covered in snow. I'm slowly catching up. In real-time, XPO is actually getting new parts put on now, rather than just never-ending welding. Continues to be slowed by ...

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...

Holy thread resurrection Dave, nearly 8 years old.

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...

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/...

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...
