Not sure if this helps you mate, sure I seen on a build that some people use this for painting the trim plastics on the caddy.

They're out of a Touran. Had it done at Caddy Solutions in Wakefield.
Great bunch of blokes and they did a spot on job.

Think that style of seats are from the 2010 to 2015 touran model I might be wrong (wife always says I am )

Ahh right. I've no idea tbh, he's got quite a few caddy's and Touran's he's stripping so I assume it's out of one of them. Sound deadening and carpeting next.

They are definitely touran just I might be wrong about model years.

Once you get the posts up and get full access loads on the How to section.

Ha no probs! I did have them in for a couple of days and they looked good. I was going for red but decided against, bought the leds as well Image just been rebuilding them today and am more than happy with the white ImageImage I’ve already got a set in that have projectors and dual white halos which were built by modified lights which I’ll put up for sale once these are all good! Planning to build a few sets as well!

Mikenorman really liking those mate there’s a guy on Facebook who does custom lights which made me think you had them done by him haha you must be very skilled with that sort of thing I’ve always been tempted to have a go at making some myself but got scared lol I might buy a second pair off line and give it a go.

Yeh he made my first set that are in my van now. I love them but have split some lights in the past to paint the inserts black and am interested in this sort of thing. I had a set of Touran headlights and thought a dual indicator would be pretty cool so bought a few bits and made what I have so far. I was going to put projectors in but I like the vw stamp in the inserts too much to cut them Image

My current set Image
