Build log of my caddy

Post by Baggedcaddy134 » Wed Apr 12, 2017 12:51 am

Going to start a build log of my caddy
From it being written off to back on the road should be doing work most weekends if the weather is allowing it. Here are some pictures from before the crash which was caused by a learner driver outside my work. I wasn't even in the van when it got hit by them.

this includes full front end
rear quarter just above the rail
rear axle (as the fiat 500 bent mine by 2mm didnt seem a lot but looked very very far out)
doors
engine and 6 speed box and shafts
touran dash
and other little bits and bobs

so first job on the list was to tackle the front end get the old one off and new one on
including a new air-con condenser as that was damaged in the smash
the bls inter cooler was a bit of a pain to get into the front panel but managed to squeeze it in by flipping the rad mounts upside down

next on the list lining front end up

this tarted by working out what bolted where and what needed saving of the panels saved of the donor van
flitch ends and so on

and undrilling the spot welds on the original front end

once that was done time to weld the touran ones in

now for the clean up process
grinding welds back quick bit of rust protection

general clean up

looks much netter looking a little more factory using all the old spot weld holes and before anyone says it isn't going to hold
all the flitch ends hold are the lights the front panel holds the weight of the rad pack.
all done

Right it been a while since I've posted but was just waiting to have the rear quater repaired but gave the job to a couple of mates now and it's the usual excuse that they haven't had time to get on it. So the plan from here on is it to get another caddy and build that one up using the bits of the blue one so all my face lift all the suspension and so on. So keep your eyes open will hopefully be making some posts to let you guys know where I'm up to 👍

Hi guys so were on track now. Finally managed to get another van it needs a bit of work but I have all the bits from my other van to transfer over. Going to focus on interior for now then move onto the suspension and wheels/running gear.
