First time caddy owner

Post by Minimark1974 » Mon Jun 28, 2021 9:44 pm

Whilst waiting for my upgrade to the forum I thought I start a little feed with my caddy project, builders van so full of sand and cement, needs new bonnet but hoping to convert to electric windows and touran mirrors and of course the golf gti bumper. A retrim and see how it goes from there. Just got my wheels and started to refurb them, cleaned up nicely need to lacquer tomorrow and see how it turns out then work on the other 3. A couple of pictures of the van and wheels to start off with ImageImageImageImageImage

On with the windows today, have got them working bit obviously have to change the pins from touran module over to the caddy, both modules have the same number but the touran has a Q at the end. Requested upgrade to forum but as yet not been authorised so in a bit of a pickle. Any help would be great fully received thanks. First pic is the caddy module

Thanks again
Mark

Managed to sort the windows, so started on the bumper today, just was wondering how long it normally takes for forum rights to be upgraded. I understand that it's not automatically done and we need to allow time for somebody to have the time to look through the requests but requested a week ago and still not authorised is this a normal amount of time.

Here's some pictures of my progress with the bumper and another wheel that Im half way through refurbing

Looking good. Is that a genuine golf bumper or copy?

It's a copy, grafted onto original bumper,

managed to get it bonded on and fitted the touran windows and mirrors still need a little work but happy with the results, rain has stopped play now., but here's a couple of picsImageImageImage

Nice. From eBay? Did it come with the trims too or do you need to get those separate?

From ebay and no didn't come with the grills, be carful though I ordered a bumper which was showing the one I wanted and they sent completely the wrong bumper. So I called them and they said they'd check with there supplier and get back to me, they didn't so a lot off messing they said they would collect Monday.

Monday came and went so now there ignoring my mails so having to go through ebay to get my money back, raaah!!!!

If your going to get one let me know and I'll send the link to the 2nd one I got, the right one and next day delivery.

Hope this helps

Picked up touran dash today and mf stalks so hopefully see about getting them fitted and see if they need to be coded in, more work on the bumper and lacquered 2 of the wheels, so it's all coming on nicely I think.

So managed to get a bit of primer on the bumper to see what needs to be addressed, think I went a bit sanding blind, but happy with the progress, polished the wing today, wow but now I need to do the whole van. Finally got some lacquer on two of the wheels, picture shows one lacquered and one still need to refurb, happy with results for my first time doing it ImageImageImageImage
