Are you keeping the wheels two tone or going for the original look silver?

in leaving them as they are Tim :) would they have been just silver when it came out of the factory ?

Yes bud, same size wheels but just silver, I think they look good as is, a few 16v's have been updated with smoked lenses and anthracite wheels.

Great work and certainly a nice example, I hope to see it next year possibly at a show.

Looks great, and brings back a lot of memories. I would absolutely keep the wheels as they are... I always contemplated painting mine back to the original silver, but as long as the silver lip is nicely polished, the Anthacite ones look ten times better. I got G-VOT what I was 18, and I managed not to crash it too. You should be fine as long as you're not stupid.

Oh, and can I have your old exhaust back box please (if you still have it)? Looks like an original Phase 2 16v jobbie, and I'm on the hunt for one of those.

A 16v was TOO fast for me, when I was a fair bit older! Utterly joyous to drive far too quickly, which is why I got rid of it. My next BX was a non-turbo diesel. Much more like it!

Loving the resto work. Great to see another Phase 1.
