Caddys like to make pockets empty!! But, with everything I've spent on mine, when I add it all up, it isn't actually that much

And so it begins.... With me slicing my fingers several times peeling back the sound deadening Image

Now the drill is on charge ready to drill out the spot weldsImageImageImage

Very very slow progress as it turns out when I'm drilling the very centre of the spot weld, it's actually to the right or left of it ImageImageImage

The spot welds have been stupid... More like a blob weld, and it might not be in the actual location of the weld.... Getting there slowly though

Robot welds that’s why! What seats will you be using in two minds whether to add seats at a later stage, although I’ve bought it for fishing and bikes so need the room!

There is a front plate that needs putting in, but it's only a support bracket so sikaflex and a load of rivets(or you can weld in if you really want to) is enough

Then it's just 4 brackets that need drilling through and bolting from underneath

I made a small mistake... and now I've got diesel on the floor Infront of my house... So I have roughly put the seats in place and a good friend of mine is going to repair the tank and fix the seats into place whilst he's at it ImageImageImageImageImageImage

Hi mate van is stunning. Im looking at getting ting rs3 seats same as the s3 ones i think. Did you fit them without touran bases after? And i just want the airbag to work not heated bits is this posable? Without a warning light being on?

Thanks

I fitted the seats straight to the bases, just had to drill some holes and some nuts and bolts. The seats are like mm wider than the rails so just pushed them in so the holes alligned which is easy enough to do

The air bag yes you can just get a connection, Stan the man sorted mine for me as an air bag loom, and then separate heated seat loom
