I can't do anything with your links either, I think you've copied the image address on your device instead of copying the links photo bucket provide for sharing.

Also forgive my ignorance but what's a cng van?

Thinking it’s compressed natural gas ?

Oh, we fitted lpg on a v8 range rover once, made quite a difference.

Got myself this Kenwood Unit to use it with android auto.

Fits ok with a cheap adapter and runs quite nice with an CANBUS Adapter.

I want to use the Caddy as a daily driver, somtimes a camper and want to be able to put my Bike into it (Honda FIreblade SC59).
Therefore is a Flexseat needet because the bike is to long (2,1 m) for a Caddy with a short weel base.

So i got myself a Flexeat of E-Bay and new seatrails because i could not find used ones.
Image Image

Old seats and rails out and the new ones in.
Image Image

Now finaly i have enought lenght (up to 2,6 m) to load basicly everything.
Image Image

Some cheap seat covers need to do the job for the time.

That's a very neat solution with that folding seat. I've seen people asking about those seats before, perhaps you'll get some questions.

Hello @mk3boy, could I ask you if your van by any chance is equipped with Webasto heater?
