Looking very nice!
I've just fitted a Stance + kit and it has those little tabs at the end of the top plate....I was wondering what they were for :D I'll have to look into getting a couple of those bars, although it seems plenty stiff at the minute?

I love a black caddy ;)

Also found time to change the rear badge over to a gloss black one Image

Just can’t decide what to do with the lettering? Remove it or plastidip in Matt black ?!

Gary.8 it not too bad. The bike pretty light as well for full enduro bike. I have to use the passenger door step up where I am bit of short ass but it a lot easier now the van sitting closer to the floor

Benc at the moment the bed is not fixed down which isn’t ideal I know. I can get cam straps thou the holes in unistruct worse case. However I have plans for the mk3 bed with possible using bits off rear bench on maxi life and the oem anchor points. Just need to check how all locks in and how going to sort the sliding draw for the fridge

Doors cards fitted nice easy all just clip into the factory holes and smarten up the rest of the van now looks more finished

Before I started I carpet the hard board panels and added some shapes to match the trims in the front but was never happy with it

This the top trims

And finished doors

Loving the black facelift maxi, have you fitted any heat insulation if so what did you use? Going to follow this thread.

@Cy Ross thanks !
When I insulated it I use the recycled plastic stuff from B&Q I wanted to use the sheep’s wool insulation from company called black mountain but couldn’t get it quick enough at the time. These both are lot healthy to use that a glass fibre product. I have stuffed it in the ceiling side doors and the void in the back and tailgate I never bothered with vapour barrier as there far to many holes and voids to make it work properly. And did the same in my last van and that last 8 years !

Thinking I need to get the brushed door handles and windows switches to finish it all off
