Well, more often than not I've got a boot full of BX spares (yes, I know it defeats the object). Other than that:

Currently: (space-strapped)
BX boot (including 3 boxes full of trim, screws, relays, bulbs etc.)
In a friend's shed (the bodywork and exhaust bits)
Various plastic bags (trim, loom sections, electrics)
Cardboard boxes round my flat
Odd bits in plastic boxes in storage
Under the bed
here there and everywhere..


Previously

Occupying most of a double garage (plus the donor and "resting" cars)
In various "resting" BXs - one in the next county
Temporarily in the bath (when cleaning up odd bits of trim)

Needless to say I am divorced.
Relying on two wheels and musclepower since the last BX (or any car) had to go.

Martys Off Topic But Slightly Related Post:
Just a cautionary note - I used to work at a criminal Justice team based in an old victorian terraced house, the place was well decrepit with cracks in the walls and all sorts. In the front "office" (a former upstairs bedroom) was 6 desks, about 6 or 7 filing cabinets and all the other associated shite you get in an office - we started noticing that the pens would roll towards the middle of the group of desks, which were all clustered to gether in the centre of the room. One monday morning the boss arrived to discover the upstairs office now in the downstairs waiting room - the victorian flooring joists had given way under the weight. You see it was designed to hold a bed and a couple of wardrobes, not much more than that - certaiinly not the combined weight of a busy criminal justice team.
Now just think about the size of your ceiling joists....

Be careful out there. :wink:
