Looking good, Also helps to use additional plywood cut outs on what would be the window sections and actual door slider. Also makes it a lot easier when you do the carpeting, ours is so so quiet having done all this, its like a car :-)

Caddy 1... looked at it thinking I really need to send to paint

Caddy 2 I’m sat in at moment waiting to test it

Caddy 3 which is currently taking over my life I need to crack on correcting all the bodging prevouse owner had accomplished. Which today’s job is trying to convert back to a caddy single wiper motor as it’s currently running two motors (early Touran) and even tho I have a later Touran in yard I bought for the front end for caddy 1, even that’s on a single motor!!

I'm really liking what some of you guys have been doing to your vans. Looking less and less like vans on the inside and more like a car..

I'm just really unsure what to do with the back of my maxi.. I bought the van to use for work (Mobile detailing) but I also want to keep it as clean looking as possible without it being cluttered to (OOOh look at me, I can curse). Maybe use it as a camper from time to time.

No major mods yet, just starting out, so I’ve been checking behind panels and measuring up the new maxi for sound deadener and insulation, practicing disassembly and reassembly.
Looking to do roof and both sides first, and being in Aus, pricing options. Currently looking at carbuilders.com Stage 1 and Insul-Layer products.
Curious what other locals might have used - any suggestions?
