Hi Jeth, looks good! I suppose a MK1 guard and indicator wouldn't work as the wheel arch is a different design.
Have you considered a spacer for the front to get the wheels sitting more flush with the guards?

Painted them with spay From a local parts dealer. They sell it as "Rear light tint spray" or something like that.

Awsome Bx's. Simpli astonishing!
A silly question, but how did manage to get the window wiper to be in center?

If the wiper assembly is the same as mine, the lever on the end of the motor goes on a spline, so it's a matter of realigning it on the splines.

At a guess, leave the wiper control on and switch off the ignition when it gets to dead centre. It would have taken a few attempts though...
