Black Pearl Caddy Build

Post by Lukesy123 »

Hi Guys,

It’s great to be a new member on this great forum !

I just purchased my first caddy on the weekend. A lovely deep black pearl caddy MK4, highline SWB.

I can’t wait to get my teeth into this build … I’ve wanted a van for a very long time. I’m coming from a BMW 3 F30 M Sport, which I modified loads over the last few years.

I first started looking at vans to make my life a little easier as a carp angler. It wasn’t fun loading my car with my fishing gear like I was playing a real life game of Tetris every other weekend. What was originally an idea to but a cheap / battered van, quickly spiralled into the idea of getting something a little bit nicer and starting a project - to use as a main vehicle as well as something I can drive to the lake.

Stay posted for updates on my build. Got some big (and small) ideas that have been inspired by many of your builds allready on this forum. Can’t wait to get going ! ImageImage

:D First Mod !

I added these dynamic smoked side repeaters from Travelin-Lite.

Really easy to change and look smart.

(Please excuse the crap picture it’s snowing where I am!)

Fit these GTI style pedals from Travelin-lite today. Very easy to remove the standard pedals and fit the new ones. The clutch and brake pedals are actual “heads” that you swap, whereas the accelerator is just a cover that you put over the existing pedal - which is attached by bending some tabs.

Really easy to do overall and brush up the cabin just that little bit more :D
