The new van looks great Hef, (as does the cossie on the next ramp )
Have you done this work yourself? I’ve lost track of how many lovely caddy’s you own!

Another cracking looking van there buddy.
Where did you get the tail pipes from?

Hi Sean mate, thank you for your kind words! I made the tailpipe from 316 stainless. I had the tailpipe on the grey van before I modified a Golf mk5 Milltek to go with the R32 engine conversionImage

@the swan fiend

Thank you my friend yes did this myself. Yes, it’s turned out to be a lovely van and always liked the classical and clean cut look of silver. Van will be in the for sale section shortly as not finished it yet. Want to wrap the roof in gloss black, fit some led front fogs and fit either a set of Audi silver/black half leather seats or Golf mk7 GTD black and silver tartan cloth seats I have in. May put a set of 20” Audi S8 wheels I have on too. Currently sitting on 19’s

Yes, that cossie is my mates very rare limited edition edition (908 i think they’re called). Had a 92 mallard green one many years ago. Amazing car (see old pic belowImage)Image

You’ve done an excellent job of it mate, your skills are impressive indeed! It will look even better once you’ve added the finishing touches, I think the GTD seats are really smart myself - You’ll have no problem selling that I’d imagine.
Your mallard green cossie was a very tidy example mate, bet you had fun in it.

Thank you mate, I used to really have a passion for engine and body mods years ago, lost it recently for a while with this and that, but getting back into it slowly in my old age ... yes the cozzie was a bit of a beast and had it up to a tad over 400bhp which was a lot back then! It’s still a great drive even today and worth 5 times more than i sold it for back then ... hindsight aye

Good to hear you’re rediscovering it mate
400 bhp is a lot of power even today in my eyes, I’ve never owned a vehicle with that kind of power. I’d probably loose my licence!

It’s when you’re on first name terms with your local magistrate you really have an issue......I’m not speaking from experience by the way
I guess a caddy with r32 power needs it’s legs stretching every now and then
