This is for the third ‘shark nose’ model. It has come from a ‘Pallas’ spec car, and so has holes where the Pallas trim has been fitted.

Rubber feet found in the boot of a Ds at a scrapyard. also found were four brackets for DS roof bars. the rubber feet don't seem to be anything to do with the roof bar brackets.

citroen cx series 1 resto

It was time to bite the bullet, 13 years of being kept outside in unremitting scottish weather had resulted in a do or die situation with my series 1 cx, I'd used it as my daily for most of this time, I must be crazy. As is always the case, once the grinder gets going, the rust is worse than expected. Anyway, it wouldn't have lasted another year, mechanically ok and never without an MOT, but the bodywork was looking rough. On the plus side I now have a lock up and found my long lost leatherman in a pile of rust once I'd taken the front bumper off.
