My blue van build.

Post by Towner11 » Tue Mar 17, 2020 4:40 pm

Here's my build, nothing exciting, but lots to do. Ordered lots of different bits and bobs to do recently in case I need to self isolate, but first off its the roof rack.

Went with the black gloss roof rack over the silver as thought it would blend in with the rest of the van.

Next up, sound deadening and preparing for seats to be fitted on the back...ImageImage

Hi, is your van standard Indian blue, paint code LL5M?

It's looking good!

Hi, cheers for that!

Gives me a little hope that after a bit of elbow grease with a clay bar, cutting compound and polish that i might get a nice shine on mine!

I don't think my van has cleaned or polished in it's 10 year life

Nice stance on her, that style wheel does suit a caddy

Latest update on the van, choice between pothole or oncoming car. Said pothole (wasn't even that bloody big!) resulted in my abs and traction control light coming on.

Also high brake light light is on, got 2/LEDs out apparently so some thing else to sort.

Started striping everything out the back ready for sound insulation.Image

Managed to get off a few hours early today so instead of fixing anything wrong with the van I took out the floor shelf in preparation of fitting the back seats.

Lump hammer and bolster through the welds, jobs a good un.

Did find another unholy mess of extra cables so shall probably end up getting an auto electrician over.ImageImage
