Mk4 black caddy

Post by Iain_88 » Thu Mar 19, 2020 7:30 pm

Thanks lads i do like a nice clean work shop Image

Some progress on the caddy this week the new bumper came on Tuesday

Image


I was expecting it to come primed ready to rub, re-prime then paint!..but that was far from the case I took out any filling work that had been done it was a ripely mess and redone it all but least I know no it’s mint Image


Here’s a few pics of the bumpers still in the booth that were painted tonight ..

There will be more updates over the weekend I’m going to self isolate myself in the garage and get cracked right on with it Image

What kit did you go for? Did you do bushes or shocks? Away to do mine once all the current havoc blows over. Looks cracking, cheers

Few updates got a bit more done over the weekend got everything painted I forgot to take more pics but he’s a couple of the bonnet and s5 side skirts Image

Managed to get most of the front end built back up and the arches on...

Was very surprised at how well the arches fitted! I have now shut the doors in the garage today so I’m going to go in the rest off the week behind closed doors and get cracked on with it, hopefully have it all built back together full paint correction and back on it’s wheels by the end of the week Image
