New caddy

Post by RyanG94 » Wed May 06, 2020 4:08 pm

Afternoon all little update on my new caddy paperwork all sorted just waiting on delivery should be here next tuesday. Dealer had wheels painted which i though was a nice touch
Little photo just to show her off

I am thinking colour bumpers and coilovers, i am not sure on what to do about wheels i quite like the steels? Or rotiform or 3sdm?
Please help me out??

Colour coded bumpers do look the part, but I've seen a few posts on here saying how tricky it can be to get a decent paint match on white....sometimes the colour difference stands out a mile!!

Well today was a very good day the caddy got here all safe and sound. Does need a very deep inside clean gear knob,steering wheel all need a very good clean. As covid 19 is still locking us all in i am going to make a small start just taking the rear wiper off and taking off the badges tomorrow.

The wiper should bend backwards (like you do if your washing it), that should take the pressure off so you can pull it off.
