We should meet up there if you're ever in north Texas. Your photos are similar to my rig when I picked up my '88 BX 19 GTI (via container from Rotterdam) at the importer's place near Houston Hobby Airport, several years ago. That makes 9 BX models in the US that I know of, found several on BringATrailer. Looks a bit strange to have a fuel hose in a car on a trailer, unless it's push-pull. What are the specs. on yours?

Summer is hitting now and needing to fix the AC. Blows mildly cool. Ill be attempting to convert to r134a soon. Mild oil leak from the Peugeot 16V allow sump. Lots of heat coming throught the shift boot, wonder if its missing a heat sheild, or is that normal?

No that's not right there is a large aluminium heat shield above the down pipe but both the gearstick gaiters split eventually so it could be that.
The Joy of BX with just one Citroën BX to my name now. Will I sing Bye Bye to my GTI or will it be Till death us do part.

Ah that makes sense. There were no heat shields for the exhaust manifold or downpipe. Made one for the manifold. Guess I need to make one for the downpipe too. Thanks.

The shield is horizontal under the car before the silencer. It has an air space above it.

A Japanese BX is rare enough. A Japanese BX in the US has to be even rarer!
