Yes Kitch cheap enough i brought my handy little SIP 100 migmate gas/no gas mig/tig from a boot market about 20 yrs ago for £20, it needed a new sleeve and trigger but it's been a great bit of kit and does everything i need it do, simple enough to use and after a bit of practice with the gas mixture and wire feed it's been an invaluable tool. Has patched up many a bx and several other jobs to boot. Does a really neat job with a steady hand tho i find the disposable co/argon gas bottles a bit pricey and they dont last long.

I dont mind a bit of welding, but there is welding and there is WELDING!!! Potentially could be a good car or could be a yet another donor.
Just weld the back doors shut :lol:

Good luck I hope it pans out for you because it does look like it has great potential.

Just washed the car inside and out, honestly if I had the money I would do this car up myself because it is in awesome condition inside. Also I found this, can anyone tell me what it is? It looks like some kind of retro central locking doohickey Image

Yes that is 1/2 a remote central locking 'plip' , you need the other half.

You could fit a battery in between those contacts and it should work. The missing bit is the cap and key ring.

Been to view this bx today, brought it. It's borderline, potentially a good car but needs a fair amount of work mostly cosmetic, mileage IS genuine 48k interior very tidy indeed, has had a bit of shoddy welding on sills, rear beam mounts are good but the o/s c-pillar base needs work but pretty solid despite the rust in the pics. A one owner car. Seller was a nice chap too.

Hi Tim, if I were to put it back on the road, it needs both front wings both headlights and indicators, front panel is bent and a small crease on the inner wing nearside (could prob be straightened out) both bumpers, tyres all round, small leak on one of the rear returns, n/s taillamp, bit of welding on o/s inner wing and sill. I have some of the bits on the tzd breaker but a pair of good white front wings would be good if Alan has some. The rear quarters are showing signs of rust just above the bumper which should be salvageable before they get worse same for the c-pillar. Will be a long term project if I go ahead cos I think it has potential to make a nice car, a few patches of poor welding will need to come off and be re done properly, it's gonna go into warm dry storage until ive made my mind up, it would be a shame to break it as well you know estates are becoming quite thin on the ground now moreso low mileage ones with gen 48k and fsh. Mechanically seems sound and started on the button and rose pretty quickly the hyd system seems in full w/o spheres a little flat tho. Certainly a genuine car with only 1 prev lady owner. I just don't have the time for bx fettling at the mo with new work commitments swallowing up all my spare time.

Cheers Phil, after the sale of the gti i just needed something to fill the vacant space, would only be right to put another bx in it's place, i've been looking out for an estate for best part of a year now with most coming up very used and abused and a lot more problematic than this one. A bonus in white too as a preferred colour choice.

The Estate arrived at home yesterday via Shipley, Had a bit of time to look over it, potentially looking good for putting back on the road, does need a fair bit of work, mainly cosmetic front end inc both wings, headlights, inds, bit of panel beating/welding to the n/s inner wing and some bits of previous welding on the sills need removing and doing properly, o/s c-pillar needs some attention too. Mechanically it's sound with no leaks showing on the hydraulics but would benefit from new spheres all round and a good service cambelt etc, tho it has been serviced yearly according to the stamps in the book. Few bits need investigating central locking dosen't work from drivers door and one of the rear windows wont move. The paint is quite flat but should come back with a good t-cut and the top door surrounds and roof strip will need some new paint. First of all the engine bay and bulkhead areas need a good steam clean as its been stood under a tree and full of leaves and twigs and i suspect something has been using the air filter box a nut storage unit. I nteriorwise needs nothing it pretty immaculate even fitted with full set of Citroen rubber mats. I will try once more to add pics with progress reports.

Damage on n/s inner wing is worse than i first thought, the whole corner has been pushed back about an inch causing a crease on the inner wing just above the bumper mount and also the flitch plate under the air filter box, the only way around it is cut another flitch/inner wing front section from another car and weld it in-wot i have there is not salvageable/repairable, time to get the grinder out. Inner wings both sides need a lot of repair work extending into the bulkhead under the screenwash reservoirs been a feeble attempt to repair there but very poor, all needs to come out and be done properly.
