BX Break TZS renovation

Post by Rickyalbe »

Hello ! I would like to share with you some photos of the restoration I have just started on my BX break.
First thing, the interior! they were dirty to say the least... I decided to dismantle all the interiors and clean them with steam and Marseille soap. The result was wonderful!

I then started to dismantle the bumpers, because they need some repairs and will be repainted. In the meantime, I cleaned the engine compartment. I also found some 14 inch 6" 4x108 alloy wheels, I'll fix them and I want to try to mount them (removing the Audi logo :D)

Coming along nicely. Will the 6" wide wheels fit under the rear arch with tyres fitted?

It looks as though you have quite a good car to start with. It should restore nicely. Looking forward to seeing progress

Let's say it will be a test.. If I'm not mistaken the 16V models are fitted with 6J rims.. I hope I don't have any problems on the Break! :D
