Thanks for those. I'd love to see what the actual start point was. Was it just a hatchback bodyshell or did Citroen build roof-less BXs for Heuliez?

If I'd known what I was getting myself into I probably wouldn't have started! It was meant to be finished by the end of December and I'm still toiling away. At least it's getting a bit warmer now.. but we currently have no car that's roadworthy! ( The wife is very tolerant and doesn't mind walking!)

This is a good counterpoint to the Heuliez production line. From the cradle to the... ( my yellow one is in slightly better nick)
