They look identical to the seats I’ve got hold off.

You need to get yourself some of those covers for behind the seats, for the partition wall. Literally the best things I’ve added to my van by far.

Vans looking ace!

eBay is your friend “Caddy Panels”

Budget-

High roller option

They also do them in clear Perspex for £80. Mine, have been cut out of a scrap piece of wood by a mate of mine. Stevie wonder could have done a neater job of making them however they’re functional and made a huge difference to the van.

I had looked at them , but wondered if they’d make any difference or not .

Good to hear a positive experience with them .

Get some!

Although I fitted cruise control and a new steering wheel yesterday which could now be my favourite mode

I think a steering wheel might be my next purchase .

Can see this turning out to be not such a cheap Caddy in the end ! 😂

Lol, keep at it. It’ll balance out in the end. Trouble I find is I buy the parts, leave them in the garage for ages. Buy more parts for the garage and rarely get round to fitting them. 3 months for the cruise control which took me all of 30 minutes to fit. Still got seats, reverse camera, EGR delete and a winch to fit. I’m also looking at rear springs and brakes all round. Surely it’ll end soon haha.

Fitted a leather GT steering wheel .
Needs a clean , but for £27 , i’m not complaining .

Will be taxed on Saturday , so I’ll finally be able to get out & use it .

That’s a good score! Makes me think twice about advertising mine my old skanky one at £40.

You know you can buy a leather die to colour the steering wheel leather. Make it look brand new!

I’d try at £40 .
The other couple of GT wheels I saw started at £80 .
Just took a gamble this one would , at worst , be better than my manky 200k one .

225/40 .

When I looked at other builds on here it seemed the common size . Sits square on the rim .
