Hello all. Just bought a caddy 1.6tdi 2014. 1 owner full history 150k. Bought as a daily runner whilst I convert my crafter into a camper.

Few things done so far.

Fitted recaros from a corsa vxr
Fitted golf steering wheel
Fitted rns510 stereo
Fitted private plate

Bought a golf 7.5 gtd front bumper
Bought facelift rear lights

To do.
Wire rear lights
Build front bumper
Get rns510 to work with bt audio
Get a new mirror with arial in
Colour code
Lower

Will upload some pics when I work out how to do it. If anyone has any advice on lights and bumper mod please speak up. Thanks in advance

So today I've developed a banging noise when off the throttle and without brake. At first I thought it was the gearbox. Upon closer inspection it appears to be the engine mount under the battery tray. Also ordered my hot staple gun off amazon so may make a start on the bumper this weekend when I've done the mount.Image

Decided to lower the van today. Got my dad in to assist. Having a ramp makes life so much easier. Need to give her a clean now and get some better picsImage

Also fitted some lights and carpet in the back and removed bulkhead.

Ordered 4 lights but sent one a different size and I ran out of spray adhesive so can't finish yetImageImageImageImageImage
