BX 16v bumper trim

Well, after 10 years, I've finally managed to source replacement BX 16Valve Ph2 bumper trim. It' was a long old journey which is overly described here; https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2024/02/BumperReproIntro.png https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/citroen-bx-reproduction-16v-bumper-trim/ T...

Citroën BX – XPO – Electrics Pt2 – Eps35 Moving out of XPO's interior and starting to prepare the engine bay for the arrival of the engine, starting with the electrics. This article looks at the engine bay wiring, which is just as bad as the interior! https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads...

Citroën BX – XPO – Interior Installation – Eps34 The start of 2024 brings a new article on the XPO restoration. Whoop. Anyone on here still watching? With the interior electrics repaired and reinstalled, I could finally move onto the interior installation. Well most of it. https://bxproject.co.uk/b...

Re: The BX Project

Citroën BX – XPO – Electrics Pt1 – Eps33 While the A-pillar rebuild on the XPO project seemed like a big challenge, restoring the electrics has proven far more taxing. https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2023/12/XPO_Pt33_Intro.png Read More; https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/citroen-bx-xpo-e...

Re: The BX Project

With the windscreen surround repaired and new glass in, the focus moves to the scuttle. Refitting the blower, washer bottles and a small welding repair. https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/XPO_Pt32_Intro.png Read More; https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/citroen-bx-xpo-tackling-the-scut...

Re: The BX Project

With so many corroded metal parts on XPO, I took a dive into DIY cleaning and plating.
Oh, how I wish I had just let grown-ups do it!

Re: The BX Project

Well, a lot of time has passed since I last updated the #CitroenBX XPO build progress, but work continues. Before work continues on the engine bay, I need to tackle the steering rack boots. And they are just the start of the problems! https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/XPO_Pt30_...

Re: The BX Project

The next task on the XPO project is windscreen surround repair. While it is now looking epic, the offside A-pillar wasn't the only rot at the front of the BX. https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/XPO_Pt29_Intro.png https://bxproject.co.uk/blog/citroen-bx-xpo-windscreen-surround-re...

CCC National Rally 2023 - #BX40UK

While I've taken far too long in writing this up, hopefully, the long read (or quick flick through pictures) on the BXProjet blog will be worth it, especially if you couldn't make the event your selves. For this year, the event (for me at least) focussed on the 40th anniversary of the BX in the UK. ...

Re: Rough Idle 1.6 GTi

Thats a crazy fault, and must have been a nightmare to track down. I wonder if I'm having similar issues with my valver as that really bogs down when the pump kicks in. Thanks for sharing

The BX Sphere

While there is a tonne of information about the 'right' sphere for the Citroen BX floating around 'the net', the more I looked, the more confusing it got. To pull all the information together and dispel some of the more regular myths, I've pulled together a rather long and winding article on the BX ...
