I trimmed off both of the thin sections left and right of the bulkhead which have the mounting points. A Dremel would probably be more precise but I just used a hacksaw and left enough material to sand and smooth down to a decent finish. The tricky bit is following the contours at front and back of the bulkhead to make sure you don’t cut off too much material.
I then carpeted the trimmed sections and mounted them using the existing holes and bolts.
I found a decent guide posted here with pictures http://forum.caddy2k.com/viewtopic.php? ... 85287b74bc

I didn’t know about the CaddyLife upper and lower B pillar trims you can get from VW till afterwards, but it’s a cheaper alternative looks the part I thinkImage

Door cards arrived today! They’re in pretty good condition as per the listing. Once the switches are replaced, lining re-trimmed and given a good scrub they should look goodImage

What year is your caddy? I’ve got my door cards off at the minute so I can give you the part numbers of mine and you can check to see if they are ok for what your doing

Thanks for the part numbers much appreciated! Just to confirm, does your driver's side motor have the same part number 1T0959701?

Did a quick search using http://www.oemepc.com and found:

PASSENGER
1T0959701 - MOTOR 2005-2007
1K0959792 - CONTROL MODULE 2004-2016
DRIVERS
1K0959793 - CONTROL MODULE 2004-2016

Looks like the control modules will work, but possibly not the motors so I'll have to look further into that one.

Had another look.. it seems like the following motors are compatible with those control units for a 2012 caddy:

PASSENGER
1T0959702 - MOTOR 2009-2016
1K0959792 - CONTROL UNIT 2004-2016
DRIVERS
1T0959701 - MOTOR 2009-2016
1K0959793 - CONTROL UNIT 2004-2016

Bit of work done on the centre console.. added an internal USB/AUX port
