I do remember it coming up for sale when it was still in Suffolk. Key rot spots are inner front wings, sills, boot floor and rear subframe mounts, which are all pretty easy to check. For the latter, remove the plastic trim either side of the rear seat base and see what it looks like in there.

 

Well, from our cursory inspections so far - inner front wings look pretty solid. The boot floor and inner rear wings have had some welding done but look OK. Not sure about the rear subframe mounts but it doesn't look too bad underneath in general (although it's been a bit difficult to examine it properly when we can't get it off the floor!).

 

Anyway, there is a plan afoot to get it to Shitefest! So hopefully the fuelling problem can be sorted, and BXpert eyes can be cast over the structure in order to assess the level of corrosion. And Beko can clean it, obv :)

I'm pretty sure the last owner did a fair bit of welding underneath to get it solid, but didn't manage to progress much further to getting it back on the road

Really, I can clean it? Reckon the museum would let me use power and water? If your super, ultra serious I can bring everything and we can have an afternoon of it whilst getting drunk...

Most sized batteries could be made to fit, there's loads of room in a BX, especially one with a suitcase lump. (Unless they have smaller batt trays than the diesels - they don't, do they?)

 

Still_Orange is away for a few days now, but if anyone can get a good batt to Billy in Chester in the next seven days, I will collect it and install it next Sunday.
