BX PARTS ROAD TRIP

Post by Tim Leech »

I have next week off work (first time this year) so what am I doing on this well overdue time off? A week in Sunny Spain perhaps? or maybe a week at home having a bit of R&R?

220 miles to the Northern Rally Sunday and THEN.....


2 days later 850 miles to and from Aberdeen to collect a van (well large MPV) full of BX parts! :shock: Sounds like my kinda holiday!

I wonder how many BX's I will see enroute! :lol:

Mind you ive never been to Scotland before......
Lots of Motors, mostly semi broken....

Nope :shock: they are the metric type, the tyres are fine, wheels have seen a rattle can or two over the years so are off to be shot blasted but will sit nice on the GT when professionally refurbed 8) .
