Good luck with the lowering, makes a massive difference. It was the thing I wish I’d done first with hindsight.

Cheers bud 👍

I've done a couple of small bits today....fitted the gloss black badges front and back and installed a new interior light, with smaller map reading lights, and led bulbs.....nice little mod!

I'm getting into this caddy malarky now :D

I bought one of those lights, with the leds in, as I'd noticed mine was a bit crap and yellowy in the light dept. got it, unwrapped it, went to the van to fit it, only to find the previous owner had already fitted one, just with normal lamps in it!!! luckily I'd ordered it from ebay, so I just returned it to them then bought the light bulbs from them and fitted them instead
if you bought from travinlite, make sure you check their ebay, it's cheaper than the online store for single bits, as they don't charge a separate postage fee on ebay!

It's even cheaper if you drive to their unit in the fire engine! :lol:

Obviously, we were on official business in the vicinity ;)

If any of you lot fit coilovers for a living, you need a medal!

Seriously, I spent 6hours after work Monday night, 5 hours after work yesterday (2am) and nearly all day today, and I got the drive side one fitted......f*****g one.
Everything that could go wrong, did ......nothing came off easy, I couldn't find certain spanners or sockets, when I have at least 5 18mm spanners, and God knows how many 10mm sockets etc......Oh, and I cracked the f*****g windscreen, trying to remove those poxy wipers......

In the end, I feel that I must be qualified as a gyneacologist by know......those top three bolts! I could only see two of em!

So, I haven't got the tyres yet, let alone put the wheels on.......they do look the bollox though!

Looks much better imo.

Also looks like you’ve done an emergency stop

So I cleaned it yesterday.... very basic wash, and I’ll be doing a bit more later

I’ve still got some messing about underneath to do and may need some centering plates, but I’ll know more later. She scrubs up well for an old girl!
