Keeping at it whilst the sun shines and stuff in the engine bay dries quickly.

Slam-panel rubbed and painted (zinc and first silver top coat to protect)


Spare wheel plate refitted, wheel cleaned and painted, tools and brace also.
Various pipes cleaned, rust-eater, painted or waxed, many pipes needed spacers replaced to prevent rubbing/chaffing
and other stuff.

Well it is that time again

One washed and off to bed

and another awoken from its summer slumber (7-8 months) but started on the button. (well screwdriver as I had to drill the lock out having lost my keys !)

Excellent! Just as I find with my Saxo... It can stand for months and then start instantly... Even without a battery top-up...

These little Cits really are rather excellent little cars...

Nite, nite Activa - sleep well and watch the tinworms don't bite!

I don't even know which of your cars I like the most now!

Now you need a C4 VTS 180!

Nor do I, but I use Man-Logic to reason why I have 4 runners.

I will guess at:
ACTIVA
AX
C5x7
CX

Still want an H-Van on a Land-Rover chassis :)

Almost as desirable as an H Van with an ES9 V6 engine and Activa suspension :wink: :-D

But then no 4x4 drive and it would neither Citroen or LandRover owners :)

I believe there's been a Land Rover or two converted to Citroen suspension Alasdair... Do I understand that in doing so renders them 2WD only?

If you're after a bit of inspiration as to what can be achieved with grafting one vehicle into another, then I can thoroughly recommend 'Project Binky'. A mildly challenging concoction of putting a 4WD Toyota Celica 2.0 litre engine, gearbox and drivetrain into an old Mini. The videos are stupidly funny, but it does actually show you what can be achieved if you really don't want to be defeated by anything. They have an engineering solution for absolutely everything :lol: They've been at it for 4 years now and have only just got to the stage of putting in the wiring harness ! Thoroughly recommended viewing... if you've got a day or so spare to watch all the episodes :)
