16v interior wanted

Post by Kitch » Thu Dec 27, 2007 9:43 am

I'm considering removing the leather interior from the BX in favour of one of the original types, either Monza or Le Mans

If anyone has an interior for sale, or knows of one please let me know.

Cheers :)

If you do change the interior, would you be looking to sell the leather by any chance?

We do have such a beast - but without front seats. All the other bits though! It's a sort of speckly black and grey-blue, will ask Remy what the technical term for this is.

Well I wasn't planning to, but if the right offer came along like.

Interior without front seats isn't a lot of good to me I'm afraid :P I tried fitting two deckchairs into it once before and it didn't work .

Kitch, I will shortly have a Monza interior for sale which is coming out of my phase 1. You'll know all the good points, so bad points:

* "shoulders" of the rear seats have a blue tinge where they've been in the sun for 18 years.

* moderate wear to driver's outside bolster (of course).

* a wire in the driver's seat pad isn't 100% where it should be (there isn't a pointy end sticking out... one of the wires that would run along the base of the "trough" in the seat pad is bowed upwards rather than being straight. Can be pushed back in but it pops out after someone's sat on it).

* rear door cards have holes for speakers, if you want door cards too.

Apart from that it's all good, but it's on a half-promise to Doc. PM him and see what he thinks/if he wants it and I'll get some pics up ASAP (it's at my parents' at the moment but I should be there in the next week or so).

As ever really, if Kitch wants them, his need is greater than mine, it's not like my car doesn't already have Monza's, they're just filthy, but I could clean them. I just usually bin them and fit another set since I'm unvearably lazy.

Whilst I love the leather in my valver, I have to say for spirited driving the proper valver seats piss all over the leather.

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

Exactly the reason for the change mate. I'm planning to press the valver into everyday service later in the year, otherwise it'll just sit around and seize up. Just waiting for the salty weather to go really, but the valver seats are way better in everyway (except coolness!) for everyday driving.

DJ: Sounds good, although I'd have to see if I could source the parts needed to make it all good. Don't want to sound anal but I'm trying to keep it all straight and tidy inside, so speaker holes are hard to get round, but if I find some odd doorcards, shoulders and a front backrest I'm laughing. Thanks for the offer, I'll see what I can find.

Ah....
Door cards I have, although they are REALLY filthy, but would no doubt clean up (rather smoke damaged).

And I'm sure I have a good seat back somewhere, although again, it'll be filthy!

Doc is an all round filth merchant! :lol:

I'll get pics up and see what happens.

EDIT - no worries about being anal Kitch (ooooh pardon, etc)... the shoulders aren't bad at all, nor is the bolster wear, but obv the speaker holes could be a problem. Will post pics anyway and you can decide fo' yo'self.

It's the joys of living on a farm, and generally always being covered in oil.
I really should change before leaping in the car, but usually I cant be bothered, if I'm not at work, I'm oily.
