Not sure how they`ve come out but here`s one or two...

..first off my bling machine estate...

Next should be the estate and the TZD 1.9TD in the background...

Next two should be of my now defunct estate (scrapped) and my first proper BX which is now in the `safe` hands of Vanny`s mate!

Finally this will either be a side view of the estate or God knows what else....

if you put [img]directly%20before%20the%20URL,%20and%20then[/img] directly after (no spaces) then the images will appear here on the forum, rather than as links, and you can see what is what.

Hi Cav, for me the first two worked great! Nice looking car that estate of yours........also the pair after it. The third one comes out as a 'thumbnail' for me.........but the 4th is ok, by the way is that the XJ in the background on your lowloader? Nice wheels.

Thanks St Gilles. It sounds daft but if I use PhotoBucket to host pictures for me sometimes when I open them they will appear as pictures I`ve previously hosted yet others see what they should be! Hence when I click on the links above it looks like some Omega alloy wheels and some Escort tyres!
The estate is getting there now, does want some tidying up & my `brainwave` of removing the side rubbing strips to clean the look up has turned into a nightmare as I cannot shift what`s left of the double sided tape that hold them on. Tried everything inc. thinners and choke and carb cleaner as well as trying to scrape them off :cry: Not to worry, if I don`t succeed I`ll get some slightly different looking ones and put them on instead.
There are some localised rust spots on it too, but no holes or rot so I can live with this for now until I can afford a decent respray. I`ve also got the leather still to fit yet heaven knows when I`ll get round to it and these `extras` may now get fitted to the TZD 1.9TD instead. One of the reasons is because that should have a nice bit of grunt and also because the estate is one of the later ones it`s a Xantia white which is much brighter than the standard BX white, so the bonnet and Morettes don`t quite match the paint but will on the TZD.

That is the XJ40 on the lowloader, getting sort of messed about with it by potential buyer so sadly it`s probably getting crushed on Tuesday. Not before the rather tasty wheels come off though. They are K+N Racelines and alas won`t fit my Mercedes, though I`m sure I`ll find a Jag owner who wants to buy them!
