Hi guys,

already gave my intro in the other thread, got hold of a cheap 2006 black caddy and decided to make it a little work van, car comes with a bst sdi engine but will transplant a bkd with 6 speed box.

so first this is how the car stands in its stock state.

caddy did not come with a radio so managed to source a replacement kenwood unit, also replaced the heater control knobs.

It has DRL fitted but were not working, checked the wiring and found the issue, this has all been done and DRLs are back on

Got some 18" vw alloys, the picture does not do them justice, however the van needs to be lowered as it just looks odd at the moment.

I’m the process of doing the bkd swap, found a few problems already wondering if you’d know anything? On the loom from the bkd there is an extra plug that runs inside the car what would I do with this as on the loom from the caddy it doesn’t have it, cheer
