You've all forgotten the ultimate holy grail of BX add on tat- the armrest cum storage box with flip up lid. FAIL!! I've got ten of them stored away in my blast proof storage bunker.!!
I'll be the one after the replacement set of BX stripes to go along the bottom of the doors!

Bought a BX/CX accessories catalogue off Ebay this week, so I'll be looking for all sorts of tat for Timex soon :roll: .

Speaking of Timex, due to the ever growing list of jobs (mostly rust related at the moment) that are needed for the MOT (I rescheduled the test for late next week today) I'm probably not going to get there until Sunday :(.

Well, the weather's so nice I have decided to leave for the Rally this afternoon. Just have to wait until I can pick up my youngest after school. She's all excited, but as Liz points out she might find a bunch of blokes talking about cars a bit boring after a day. Lucky we have a trip to Bletchley Park and an evening dinner to break the monotony lol!

Is anyone else coming? Was expecting a right BXfest but the ZXs are threatening to outnumber us!

Weather is stunning, Bletchley was ace (even though the convoy got lost.)

I think Rachel was hoping you'd be here today Sandre, but we're off to the posh meal in a bit anyway. See you tomorrow! (We have plenty of tea!)

CXM attendance fail! :cry:

Still welding Timex! I basically have 4 days to (among other things) weld a sill, rear footwells, C Post, inner wing and rear cross member, finish refitting the PAS and water hoses, change a rear cylinder cover, refit the interior (most of it's stacked in the back) and change a fuel line for the MOT before I have to go back to work, otherwise the only way I'll get to France is to pay someone else to do it :(

Convoy from Milton Keynes?

Doesn't quite have the same ring to it as Journey to the Center of the Earth.
