New to Caddy life... Ex BG maxi build

Post by Pman1984 » Sat Jul 10, 2021 3:58 pm

So after my wife's touran gave up at 180k miles I picked up an Ex BG maxi a couple of weeks ago to use as a work horse (or so she thinks)

57k miles with a stamped service book, body work is ok for age but that's somthing to work at.

Just thought I'd start this thread to document my progress (will be slow at times as 4 kids at home)

Already removed all the BG wiring and swapped out the front seats for the Touran ones, next will be the dash and door cards etc before a much needed audio upgrade.

Thanks for looking and all advice welcome.

Make sure you swap out all the brackets and all the air vents as a lot of people forget to do this.

Coilovers arrived today and 7 hours later I only have the rears done, 10 year old van with a few rusty bolts... Have them in the highest setting for now (I think/hope) as still on the steel wheels but much improved arch gap.ImageImage
