First Caddy Royal Blue

Post by Jayofmx » Thu Jul 18, 2019 11:55 am

Well lads, first post on here and first caddy. Man this forum is addictive. Picked up a 2012 of a friend of mine, this will be used as a daily and travelling to mountain bike races. They plan is to carpet line the back, colour code the bumpers and hopefully lower it. Regards lowering it, I dont have a clue so advice is appreciated.

Also I'd love to hear some of your opinions on some upgrades I could do that won't put a big dint in the pocket.

I won't be doing anything outrageous on this as racing mountainbikes is expensive enough, I just want to have a nice looking motor when I'm on the road :D

Cheers lads

another one hooked!😂

You've already got a nice looking van, so thats a good start!
Personally, I'd put a stance+ lowering kit on for £280 and lose the chrome elephant ears!

Then take it from there.....!

I don't actually know, they were on the van when I got it. Looks like an Ebay buy.

I have been quite on here since my first post. My main focus since then was to get the rear sorted with 4 way stretch carpet and laminate flooring. This was the first thing I wanted to do when I got the van in April. I have attached a good few photos of the progress. Still some small things to do such as the light on the roof and a few other small bits but I am happy with how it came out considering I hadn't a clue what I was doing :lol: . I found a really good tutorial on YouTube which only for that I don't think I could of attempted it ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TON7xuJkQs8&t=1439s)

I got 10 meters of 4 Way stretch Carpet from Van Line NI (https://www.vanline-ni.com/leisureacces ... g-material) aswell as 1 can of Spray adhesive + delivery was €188, I later bought 3 more cans. There was already plywood in the van when I got it,so I removed that and used the original shape to cut out new fresh sheets.

I got a few sheets of sound deadening, which I should of ordered more :roll: but I used what I got and worked quite well (https://ebay.to/2qRMRAk )

I bought laminate flooring from hardware store B&Q for 40euro and applied that on top of the already plywood flooring

Bought 5 battery power lights from Ali express for the moment until I get a more permanent lighting set up sorted but I am pretty happy with the light these provide, they are also have motion sensor so as soon as I open the doors at night they all come on ( https://bit.ly/2QiyWxO )

Future plans are still to get it lowered and colour match the bumpers, maybe some new wheels ;)
