Will get back to you

Post by soxer123 » Thu Feb 01, 2007 10:14 am

I put in a bid with 11 hrs to go. If that gets overtaken, I will let you know.

Thank you

KP

PS. Are windows for BX Hatches plentiful in the scrappers these days ? Just in case. I live in a crap area so some time I am sure to find some glass missing from it one morning.

I haven't seen a BX in scrapper round Bristol for a LONG TIME now, but, again, the wealth of spares peeps have on this forum should see you ok for years matey! :D

Don't take the Hayne's too literally, it's often more useful to ask on here, then just use the haynes for reference, we'll have you rebuilding engines in no time!! :wink:

Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

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

A sphere change is actually a very good place to start. Once you have spent ten minutes doing the front ones (And an hour or so the rears,) you will have largely demystified the BX and the effect of new spheres is something truly magical.

Spheres...

Post by soxer123 » Thu Feb 01, 2007 7:17 pm

Well, I am the sort of person who sets themselves new tasks each year, but dabbling with the Citroen wasn't going to be one of them.

I will say, I tat about in a lot of computer forums and I don't think any of them are as friendly as this one. I like being here.

And I second Bandit, who seconded Billy, who seconded Dean..... God it's like the bible, only they were all begating.... lots of begating going on in the bible, dirty bu&&ers....

Anyhow, bandit, you'll need a BIG piggy bank to keep up with my ale comsumption whilst fixing your motor!!!

Initially, you'll note a large increase in Doc's performance while being plied with Beer, then you'll notice, after about 20 pints, that productivity falls off!! :lol: :lol:

Oh, and since I failed miserably to welcome you along earlier, WELCOME ALONG SOXER!

Oscar, sod the bathroom...washing is for wimps anyway..tell SWMBO that bathrooms are best done on rainy days. Get your butt down to S Wales...about 7 of us are celebrating Tims buying of his 1.4 Bleader c/w Chav pattern seats...tea and biscuits at my house then down the pub for ale and grub (anyone know Oscars weak points...apart from bathrooms??) :wink:
