It'll be staying for as long as that door does. I love it.

New caliper and boot struts ordered, so hopefully I'll soon have a BX that doesn't have binding brakes and doesn't keep dropping the tailgate on my head!

it is great! and you will have the other door to match soon, I would love to get a set made up to put back on the DTR but I doubt it would be possible/cost effective.

I reckon if you could get a decent enough photo of the graphics (and very accurate dimensions), I could create a black and white version which a specialist printer could work with. I would be surprised if the cost of creating a set would be more than £50 ea.

Same goes for any 'accessorie' graphics.

Very true Phil. My last BX was covered in stickers, but I don't think that cost more than about £30 IIRC. The graphic fitted sadly covers a lot of corrosion, so it will need replacing at some point.

I've generally found disassembling cars only tends to draw a crowd of interested onlookers. If you want to upset people try painting your car, or fitting an elevating roof to a van in the middle of a rally field...

There's an idea, we could all lend a hand to paint Dollywobbler's car. It would seem fitting to use brush paint...
