Hi, welcome to the club.

That is a fine looking BX there, and a rather rare spec. If it wasn't so lovely and original I'd offer you a set of 16v alloys to liven it up a bit :wink:

I'm 99% sure that I actually know who you are... From my student days - How many people can there be round here with a 007 2CV who are also called Rich? :lol:

Regards,
Matt

Excellent... great to have you on board! :lol: If you ever need any parts for your car let me know, I have loads.

I'm doing well thanks. How are you? Never thought you'd buy a BX... very good choice. Although having said that, mine hasn't started due to an electrical fault for months now :cry: Here's my car. Traded up from my old 1.4 to a full blown 16 valve: http://www.bxclub.co.uk/forum/viewtopic ... sc&start=0

DIY with a rattle can.

The wheels were in ok condition to start with... just surface rust fortunatly.

I attacked them with a wire brush bit on my drill, followed by rust killer, a coat of Zinc 182 spray primer and then 2 coats of top coat which is Gris Rose intended for my 2cv wheels.

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...
