MK3 06 Caddy 1.9 TDI Build Thread

Post by JackHale14 »

Finally got around to starting a build thread. Other than mechanics that needed sorting since ownership of the van I've not done too much thus far. I have insulated/sound deadened the van, re cut all panelling and 4 way stretch carpeted. I have fitted the Touran bases for some MK7 GTE seats to bolt on. I have also changed the heating control dials. I will try and upload some pics later on today.

I have purchased the ratchet armrest and in the process of buying many touran donor parts (the usual door cards, carpets & wing mirrors). I do have plans for a full front end conversions, sick of the tea light headlamps :lol:

Making some headway at uploading pics. Not much done as mechanically everything keeps giving up on the van. Spent more on repairs than it’s currently worth to PX🫠. Lowering kit has arrived alone with arm rest, touran carpets, dashboard and a new bulkhead.

After. Makes a difference to seat adjustment. Wasn’t expecting it to be all that noticeable, but very happy with it.

Will get some pictures of the carpeted rear this evening. New rail and rail cover has arrived :D Putting a rail cover on is one of the first ‘mods’ I wanted to do. Looks so unfinished without one.

@snuffegull they are! Certainly pricey but needing a bulkhead for vans purpose it was a no brainer. Haven’t seen these often so jumped at the chance when I got in contact with a supplier
