Ace! Glad to see this is living on. It's got the comfiest seats in all of AX and the peppiest pep. It's still got a very big place in my very small heart.

About time I updated this.

 

I had a go at the paint. 'Had a go' is being incredibly complementary. As I've already mentioned, I managed to scrape the penning lacquer off without (much) further damage. I sprayed a few coats on, but on a very windy day-as I'd pretty thoroughly masked the car up, in the road, I preserved, with the inevitable result of a streaky finish caused by spreading closer close so as the wind didn't blow it all away. It's better, but not by much.

I put a set of tyres on. The fronts were for four years old, and the rears eight. Kuhmo tyres. I took the (original) trims off in case the tyre fitters decided to remove them with a hammer or something, and I've left them off. I like black steels.

 

IMG_20180911_115326.jpg

 

My stereo (with USB, because I can't abide the radio), fitted. I think the cage has been in more cars than [insert non-PC simile here].

 

The cigar lighter was working all along. It was my USB charger that wasn't. The inoperative reverse light was just a bulb which isn't hadn't been changed because you need to open the boot to do so.

 

There was another issue with dashboard-related electronicals; half the backlighting didn't work, so you couldn't see the speedo at all at night.

 

IMG_20180911_160819.jpg

 

After some dismantling and a handful of bulbs which costs pennies (and the local factor gave me a bulk discount because I bought 10! 11/10, will shop again), the issue was resolved, but not before fixing the broken bits left by a previous owner.

All I did was glue in some nuts in place of the broken plastic bus the screws thread into, and use long machine screws instead of self-tappers, but for some reason that small repair was incredibly satisfying. 

 

It's had a basic service-oil and filter not pictured, because the sump plug refused to budge the day I did the other bits. When it did, a mere 1.25 litres came out (capacity 3.5l).

Bonus giffer-bodge shot:

The aforementioned stereo had consequences. The original spammers obviously objected to continual, full-volume Depeche Mode, and gave up within less than a day.

 

IMG_20180911_173155.jpg

 

The only two speakers are in the back, just behind the doors. The doors have no wiring at all-there's no central locking, the windows and mirrors are manual. 

 

The boot lock remains inoperative. The part is NLA from Citroen, so I've wangled the mechanism so as the rod is reachable from inside the car. 

 

I've been saving a few bits up before posting this, so as not to post a series of 'changed a wiper blade today #builtnotbought #mechanic #madskills' type posts, and in the meantime have decided to get rid of the AX. 

 

It's as I bought it, plus new tyres, a service, and new speakers. And a dealer sticker and AS sticker. The appendages are still on, and the car will come with the a-frame. £350, Folkestone, Kent.

I didn't want to sell this following purchasing it from Bramz,  but following the winter i drove it through, I had no further use for it, and hated seeing it being unused. Bucketeer came to its rescue.

 

It was a very comfy thing to use instead of the motorbike - seats and heater the best I have experienced. And I could not resist peeling the lacquer off of the roof as it lifted (daily).

 

Hopefully it will live on in the AS community, as I like seeing it pop up every now and again

It's fairly near that (although I find either my own house or the pub far better for my wellbeing). If you start there, head towards this:

Then when you get to here you're nearly there:
