I am finally working on mine. When I say "working", there is not much to do. I have been having a look underneath, cleaning some 11 year old dried crud off here and there and am pretty impressed with everything. I have bought some Dynax S50 but really pleased with how clean and solid the underbody is, dry storage has helped. I have replaced the HP pump belt, rises nice and steady now with no squeals and the steering is better. This is just in and out of the garage :lol: Also changed the oil with the mandatory Purflux filter. Cambelt was done a couple of years back as a precaution so should be fine but wise to have a look.
I have a leaking caliper to address where the hose enters (threads gone), plus a bit more checking around. The weather is slowing things up and I have a garden project to start shortly but there is light at the end of this very long tunnel and being on the road may not be too far off provided it is ahead of winter, that is my goal. :mrgreen:

In respect of who could be, I could but with the loooooong winter, I am not and it looks like it will stay that way until all the salt has been thoroughly washed away. It was a dry day today but my car arrived home covered in a white layer of dust. Imagine what that will do to a 28 year old. Plus some nice warm weather will make it a bit more appealing.

Mine is again now :D

Was MOT'd this time last year, only 2 minor advisories and then ended up going back in the garage for another year.

So in total has been off the road for nearly 5.5 years, based upon the tax disc in the window expiring end of 12.2017.

However on Easter Monday, service was done. Oil and filter change, coolant dropped out and replaced, cambelt changed as well just in case plus a good inspection and fettle of the rest of the car.

Also now insured, so just got to get the tax paid and then go and give it a test run on the local bypasses 8)

Mines still on the road. I started an instagram account for it to try to build up my own enthusiasm for the car, it's doing pretty well and has certainly helped motivate me.

Mine is no longer with me, but it will be back.

I dragged it down to Stroud last month where it will be titivated while I move house.

A change of job sees me surrounded by people actually interested in cars which should make living with a BX a pleasure rather than a chore.
