Hi Everyone,

So I've finally got round to starting a build thread.. I've been a member for awhile and bought my white 2012 Caddy 1.6 TDI around 8 months ago.
Thanks to inspiration and help from the Forum, these are the mods I've done so far:

Bulkhead removed
Fitted a Saris Tracks bed bike rack
18" VW Talladega wheels
Aftermarket Undertray
Pioneer SPH-DA120 Head Unit
Pioneer TS-WX120A compact under seat Sub
Updated heater control knobs
VW Touran seat bases
VW MK7 Golf R Seats
VW Caddy Life Centre console
Team Heko wind deflectors
VW TDI engine cover - custom painted
Van-X Glove Box lid
VW Dash Storage compartment with lid
VW Under bonnet insulation
VW RCD510/310 USB Panel Input Switch
VW RCD510/310 AUX Panel Input Switch
VW MK5 Golf Gti Pedals + Aftermarket R Foot Rest Cover
Audi S3 8V Air Vents
115ah Leisure Battery via Durite VSR kit + 600W Durite Pure Sine Wave Inverter
PORSCHE 911 Oil and Coolant Caps
Rear Windows Tinted 5%

Pictures and a bit more detail to follow :D

Golf R MK7 heated seats ft. checker-plate rubber flooring covering the ply in the back of the van

Caddy Life Centre console from Sirius Automotive

Removed the caddy seat bases for Touran bases

Managed to get a good deal on eBay from a guy who was less than 10 minutes drive away so couldn't resist!
They came with the rear seats & door cards so hoping to get those sold on eBay soon

The build is coming on really well inspired!

Sorry in advance for the question as I am sure you have been asked this, how did you get on with fitting the seats was it fairly easy?

Thanks much appreciated!
Yes they were surprisingly easy to fit.
The Touran bases went straight in and after shuffling the seats around a bit to locate them on the bases, it was an easy job bolting the seats down. I only needed a spline hex bit on the end of my wrench for the bolts
