Unreal bit of kit in the back of that van! Very nicely done.

Autospark - would you be up for having a go at wiring my new TT seats? They have electric lumbar adjustment, don't know if they are heated (prob not), but there are 3 multiplugs hangining out of each of them and I don't know where to start! Obviously they have side airbags which I would not like hooked up lol.

Hi Rob we are flat out in work at the minute, I bought a half leather Audi electric interior which I am not going to use now I will look at the wiring and give you a shout back during the week, if I haven't got back too you by then, give me a PM.

Daddy, do you ever be around Carrickfergus or Greenisland? Im near certain I saw your caddy on the station road in Greenisland a while ago! Didnt get a great look but from what I saw it did look very similar!

Most deff dude, I go to there about once a month, and sometimes I would deliberately go that way even though the motorway is handier during the summer to go to Larne, I love that wee bit of road round the coast or sometimes over the hill on the back road. Would do a bit of fishing out at the Maidens. ;)

Hi,

Nice van :mrgreen: I have just had a price from sortimo for the same internal racking and floor system :shock:OMG, I only want the racking not the whole van.
but my question is how does the van cope with the weight? I am a mobile service engineer and with my tool box and spares the van " sags" at the rear, I was thinking about lowering the front to make it look better, or is it possible to uprate the rear springs?

I notice the caddy maxi has a higher payload, wonder if you can fit maxi springs to a standard caddy? Do you notice any problems with all your equipment in?

Thanks

Hi Mossa your right it is a bit pricey to buy the racking, but this will last the life of the van and will then be removed and fitted into my Mk4 when it comes so divide the cost over eight years and it a sound investment. I have zero probs running with this kit I would recommend it most deff. I am running the 2K @ 1690Kg with a full tank off fuel and it is 100% on issues at all plus the added bonus of the van lowering itself with the extra payload :lol: :lol: Not sure about the maxi suspension dude. good luck with your 2K.
