My ex BG caddy

Post by Jamesf18eld » Wed Jan 03, 2018 9:57 pm

Alright guys,,

Iv been a member on here for a while now and thought i may aswell start a little build thread. Funds aint unlimited so progress may be slow but its the small things i can do myself that i enjoy doing. Hope you enjoy Image

Sooo before my caddy i had a VW golf 1.4 tsi 160 which i had mapped to 188bhp..i loved it it had every extra you could think of (bit different in the caddy now Image) few pics for you—
Image
Image
Image
The reason for the change is i having the motocross bike and pulling a trailer around just wasnt for me ..


I picked up the ex bg at 95000 and in pretty decent condition. It was used but i was happy with it..
Image
First day on the drive..
Image
That night the racking came out...
Image
Bike fit great and i was able to salvage the already connected LED strips which i have now attached to the roof and they work brilliantly ImageImage (A little pic for the mx’ers out thereImage)You can see the strips being used in the background ...
Image
Started wrapping the interior.
ImageImage
Image
It wasnt great and has since been removed whilst on a long boring drive ImageImage i had a another go recently with some vinyl i was given which i think looks better but will probs do it again to try and get it perfect Image
Swapped the front and rear badges to matte black and changed the DRL bulbs and headlight bulbs to try and get away from the yellow look ..
Image
The latest thing is i had a set of 18’s delivered today from LK after a good mate and new fellow caddy owner put some on his and I thought they looked the dogs. Got home picked the wheels up and was straight round to jacks house (Caddy0802) and he helped me get them on. I know it needs lowering because it is riding so high but that is something on the to do list..pics aint great because it got dark so fast..
Image
Image
Image
He has a very nice coded maxi which you find his thread on here somewhere Image
Meeting up with him again tomorrow for a wash, vinyl and tinkering day so will have better pics from that... thats it for now really. Will try to update when i can Image

Much love

Had a bit of caddy today with Caddy0802 which you may have already seen.. The van still has the residue from the BG vinyl so it isnt perfectly clean but looks alot better than it did Image
ImageImageImage
Picture of the wheels..
Image
Wrapped the interior with plain sliver but the plastic make it look pretty good i reckon...
ImageImageImageImage
Pictures were taken in the dark so aint great.. Thing im going to take off the 2 on the steering wheel and do them gloss black, think it may be a bit much. What you rekon?

Much love
