2013 daily workhorse

Post by Bjoates » Thu Jul 16, 2020 11:19 pm

So just after picking up my "new" (2013) caddy a few days ago...

So for the moment it's fairly stock and when I figure out how to upload photos I will!

Plans for the near future are:
Fog lights and OEM switch
Ply line and carpet ply panels in rear
Have a cover ordered for the mesh in the bulkhead
Tint the rear 2 door windows
Some shelving (will be a work van)
Simple wind deflectors
Some LED DRL's

Any opinions on HID's for the main lights or just get better bulbs?ImageImageImage

Also wondering if anyone has any ideas of what sort of a rubber mat I could get for the rear that would be non slip?

I fitted this textured, chequer plate pattern rubber to the back of mine, still quite grippy when it’s wet, I use it for my mountain and cross bikes. From eBay, not too expensive either!

Just been out and measured it, 3mm

If you glue it down, make sure you glue the whole thing, I left gaps and when the van heats up in the sun the rubber lifts a little, not major, but it is annoying!

I lifted it and redone it!

Wondering if anyone has had any experience in getting a 1.6bhp 75bhp remapped?

Was thinking not getting a remap and want to know if it does more harm than good

So the next little install has been a pair of covers for the bulkhead to cover the mesh on itImage

Waiting for the ply to be delivered to kit out the rear, also have a set of OEM fog lights ordered and getting a full service next weekImage

Good luck with your van. I see you have most of your list nearly complete. Any plans to add to the list now :D

So I'd say it will start with touran bases and seats and I'll be on the lookout for a white front bumper and rear bumper to color code it and I might upgrade the radio to an rcd330 if I save some pennies

So just a little update, have installed 2 racks so I can carry my bikes in the rear of the van in the last monthImage has worked perfect with loads of space to bring extra in the rear with the bikes.

Thinking of building a box just behind the bulkhead for some extra storage, and will spin the bikes around and mount the axle mounts on top of itImageImageImage
