new head unit with revere camera and component speakers went in this week. Looks great and I’m buzzing about it.


Pioneer head and camera , focal speakers in the door cards and tweeters in dash.

Fitted a set of new tyre last week as the insides were eat off them. so after a bit of reading I got a set powerflex adjustable camber bushing off eBay for €32, sweet.
I fitted them this morning and had it tracked at the local tyre Center as there machine has a setting for lowered suspensions on the caddy.
I done know if it the tracking or the new bushing but it feels so so much nicer to drive now, may sort it my high MPG as the Toe was way out

@thecolourpurple I very much like the look of your van & the external subtle mods that you have created. I am a recent new member on here (no photos uploaded yet but I shall change that this coming week) & noticed the mesh grille on the front of your Caddy which is the first one I have seen on this forum. I purchased a similar version recently & consider them a nice addition at a sensible price. I also admire the placement of the vinyl lettering on your side bars --- good location, nice detail.

@Boonalon. That’s a great price for those adjustable camber bushes! Was it uk eBay you got them off, as I notice the price is in euro’s? Do you have a link please.

@Craig Cheatham I’m in the south of Ireland, so hence the euro price but I use eBay uk generally as default still, but I’ll probably have to change that later in the year when the uk full leave and tariffs kick in.
It was a guy in Belfast selling them. I think it may have been a one with the seller as all he has is clothes listed now for sale.

Were sitting away from the van and camera angle probably ain’t helping as it’s on highest setting on shackles at the minute
