Daddy's Caddy update September 2014

Post by DADDY » Thu Apr 08, 2010 3:03 pm

Hello all, thanks to dooka & s31teg I have been able to reduce the size of these pictures of my caddy project. This is the work done so far.
I want to work from the inside out with seats steering wheel and peddle box next.
I was rolling on 18" r32 reps until Mr pot hole shit two of them. Would like LMs under a set of KW's and possibly 2010 tear-drop Touran face lift, apparently the parts are about £2k for the facelift so ill keep dreaming on that one LOL :lol: :lol: .
Here are a few pics shoved into a slideshow

Thanks for the comments Jonesy Im glad the link to photo bucket worked this time for ya M8, I started fitting the rear glass guards this weekend and the guards are second hand and the mounting clips are broken off.
So a wee job has turned into a big job.
I made up 8 polished stainless steel mounting brackets today and GFX are going to do the reflective signage same as the bottom door panels. To finish the job right I wanted to fit M10 PRO Bolts and M6 Countersunk with washers all anodised in blue but the feckers are looking two fortunes £54.24 :evil: :evil: , do you or any of the forum members know of any where else you can get them at a sensible price :?: :?: .see picture of the bolt Im after. ;)

Fitted the second hand glass guards, beefed up the mounting points and got them covered with the same reflective vinyl as door cards.

There is a CD rom available for download it as it shows different combinations for the CK SWB & LWB, YOU CAN GET 50mm drawer I think mine are 35mm the former may suit your profession better, bit like Burger King "Have it your way" :lol: . Also I would recommend you price your install fron Bott they do the OEM install. They were 300 notes more at the time I was looking around, but prices change worth a call.
Also Bott have a cheaper racking system available they don't advertise this fact but if ya talk to your agent he will tell you. A bit like Snap-On and Blue- Point sold from same van different prices?? the intricacys of marketing SAF ;) PS tell the fitter you want your kit ordered with the same key serial number, this is a good mod as I have five locking compartments but only need the one key, saves pulling the dung out of the ignition barrell with a big bunch of keys, know what I mean dude. Hope this helps you good luck with your search let me know how you faired out ;)
