Impressive transformation! The paint is amazing :shock:
Are you going to leave the headlights like that or modify them as well?

Thanks dude. Need to finish off sorting the paintwork with flatting and polishing few little tweaks, got the brakes coming off the wife’s mk5 GTi to give a little more stopping power and need to finish sound deadening and carpeting the inside along with audio install etc before starting on the air install lol

Sorry guys been quiet. Things are looking up on the family front so things can move forward for a little while.
Been collecting parts for the van and waiting on some bits to be delivered.
Ordered a load of sound deadening that should be here for the weekend along with some audio equipment and a load of wiring to be done for accessories and lights for the back.
Also got a big brake kit from a Golf R32 but bizarrely it appears the front hubs have been changed for 50mm ones to fit the coilovers so have also bought some 55mm alloy hubs thanks to advise from Doc.
Plan will be to sound deaden and get the brakes/hubs fitted this Saturday then crack on with building the audio install in the n/s rear quarter up the side as wanting to keep as much load space as possible.

Sorry guys been quiet whilst sorting family stuff out.
Anyway been using the caddy and loving it. Decided to do the TFSi and dsg swap later in the year once have repacked the mrs Golf GTi with something else, however, the 6 speed Touran gearbox in the caddy decided to shit itself. It was all the encouragement I needed Image Managed to have a test fit of a set of Rotiform Split rims we have in for full refurb too Image
Engine and box out of the Caddy this weekend just gone loom ready to come out. The seats, dash, centre console and carpets will be coming out then can sound proof the floor, do all the wiring and pedal box, shifter etc. Any assistance very very welcome lol
