Post by RMS_TTIANIC »

exterior of the vehicle is pretty bad, but the interior is in an ok state, visible discolouration in the seats, but no tears or rips. Ill add some pictures later, but message or reply for anything specific

Nice dent in nsr door too. Looks as tho the binnacle has been off as well and the front end is propped up on axle stands
I'm in the East of England but don't know where the car is located. If its local I'll take a look.

I guess if the diesel pump is shot its not worth fixing, it doesn't look that rotten up top but they never do.

That door looks as if it may pop mostly out as they are thin metal

Regarding the BX for spares, I am looking for a hazard warning switch and a drivers window switch and possibly an electric window motor/mechanism for the same year car if you are able to dismantle parts please!

A decent s/h fuel pump (or at worst an engine) shouldn't be too hard or expensive to find if that's all it needs-if that is the initial problem, this could be another one of those that looks worse than it is, like the one in Norwich Tim which was a real shed but the shell was solid, potential saver and that interior doesn't look too bad either. The paint is shot tho.
