It was a big yellow box on the roof full of road grit with tubes on to the road to save it getting stuck in the winter. You know how those BMW cars are useless in the snow. Only problem is they forgot they made the Bini front wheel drive,,,,,,,,,,,

Is that an anti-rust precaution?



probably quite the opposite Jim, as its packed in the chassis rails, bit like its was suggested Poxhall used to do similar back in the 60's and 70's, just to help the tin worm you understand :shock: :wink:

Gosh, couldn't those 60 Poxhalls ever rust... Remember the Victor... It would rust before your very eyes... The first service involved welding up the sills...

Jim has your C1 got front fogs fitted,
as i have just had a delivery from my local Citroen dealer of more obsolete stock, and amongst it all there is a front foglamp accessory kit, i havent looked to see what they would normally sell for, but once i have they will be up for sale, at a fraction of the dealers price,
the kit includes two fogs, mounting brackets, wiring loom and half a tree in literature

Malcolm, we need to check if they'll fit mine as mine is a very late model and they're different at the front..

Can I PM you my VIM Number to check?
