Mines back after second visit to bodyshop as they needed to re paint tailgate, plus they had got a light dusting of overspray all over the van plus windscreen... Sorted now, they ended up mopping whole caddy

The screw that holds the lower mirror trim piece sheared off when I did the puddle light mod. Not sure how I'm going to remove it. Any suggestions?

I had one shear off on each side, I just put them back on with one screw only, next year I will drill them out and re tap them or helicoil them

Best in category.
It's nice to have other people appreciate all the work that has gone into the van.

Thanks for the comments guys. As I've said above its nice to hear other people appreciate the effort.

Today I had to replace an inner cv boot. Easy enough job. Best to avoid the venomous spiders though. This here is a red back spider. Anti venom is readily available but you really don't want one biting you.

The carpet is 4 way stretch carpet available from pretty much any motor trimmers. I got the marine grade stuff so it's guaranteed not to get mildew or rot when exposed to water.

As with most of the carpet lined vans on here it's applied with spray adhesive.

As Im in Australia I cannot recommend somewhere close to you. You could try eBay.co.uk. I suspect there will be sellers on there who will ship to Bulgaria.

Hi Horace,

Love your caddy. This thread is very inspiring.
I'm up in Queensland and having troubles finding someone to lower my 2008 Maxi.
Have you got any advice. What have you exactly done to your caddy. Would you do it a different way a 2nd time.

Cheers
Daz
