During lockdown 1.0, I revived the BX Project and started blogging about all things cars again, may be of interest to some of the BXClub members. I'll update this thread as I add specifically BX content. You can find the Blog here;

I'm not a big car detailing (or even washing) fan, but when the filth builds up, I use Autobrite Purple Rain wheel cleaner. Rear more here;

Spray on stuff called Back to Black. Its good on skis as well as a temporary substitute for waxing the bases.I used to use it when I was ski racing at Gloucester dry slope. Went there in a BX of course!

Citroën BX - Cleaning the engine and gearbox
