FZO White Caddy

Post by Trials 21 » Mon Apr 10, 2017 12:16 am

Okay so it's definitely been a while but hey ho.
Im going to try keep things in chronological order but as they were quite a while ago they might get a bit jumbled.

Anyway the reason I got my van was so I can trials bike in the back, so the first thing needed was a ply lining kit.
So I ordered one through plyline UK for about £110
I still want to carpet it to finish the job but haven't got around to that yet, and I forgot to add insulation so it's still a bit loud.

Next was a dash cam, it might not be too exciting but ive come to love it over time.
Goluk 1080p with WiFi

I also thought the van was lacking with its original black plastic bumpers and mirrors so off it went to the bodyshop and it came back looking amazing, it looks like it changes the shape of the van.

Then I changed the DRLs
Funny thing is, everytime I start the van the canbus error light pops up on the dash but if I click it over to sidelights it disappears untill I turn the van off again, but oh well they were only eBay LEDs hahaImageImage

Then I went on to fit some uprated Pioneer door speakers, and whilst I was in there I had a go at using silent cost to dampen things down a bit, unfortunately I don't have a full bulkhead I've got the mesh design one so all the noise comes through from the back.

Also fitted some team Heko wind deflectors.

Oh and almost forgot about my little lip spoiler ImageImageImage

Then it was on to wheels, and I have found out that I am very very picky but ended up going with some called RH Allurad NBU race in black with polished faces, I really like the look of these especially as they fit the van perfectly offset wise.

Also I went for some nice Toyo Proxies T1Rs
They feel really nice on the road and are quite predictable especially in the wet.ImageImageImageImage

Hi Mate, Good work with the caddy so far!

Which pioneer speakers did you fit? I was looking at the following two kits which apparently fit the caddy with adaptors. Was also wondering how much work was involved in fitting them?

Pioneer TS-G1720F G-series 17cm 6.5" 2-Way 300W Coaxial Car Speakers
CT25VW05 165mm Front Door Speaker Adaptor

Pioneer TS-A1733i 17cm 3-Way Coaxial 300W Car Speakers
CT25VW05 165mm Front Door Speaker Adaptor

Thanks, I went with some from Amazon I believe they are 300 watt but I will find out the exact specs when I get home.
They are pretty straight forward fitting wise i had to watch some YouTube vids to find where all the clips/ bolts were, i believe you have to drill out the old rivet heads on the stock speakers ( sorry but im not 100% as this was a while ago) but apart from that they went in quite nicely.

Thanks Liam! I've got some plans for it in the future it's just money dependent at the moment so we will see

Ohh one thing to note if anyone ply lines there caddy,
I found that on the side door if you don't remove the factory MDF panel thingy and you put your plywood panel over the top be careful on the gap to the rear wheel arch when the door is open.
I made this mistake but it was only just clearing but as I diddnt notice over time with grit and mud doing there bit it scratched up my paintwork quite good.
Fortunately T-Cut did it's thing and it's quite hard to spot now.ImageImage
