My First Caddy

Post by msmb85 »

Managed to make it to 37 and not own a caddy. Now that I own one I know find my self asking why did it take so long.

Picked up mine from a friend’s dad

Basic Van a 1.9 105. Needed some work done to it. So fitted new pads and discs all round, clutch master cylinder and a full service was carried out. Turns out the van had been mapped before and drives spot on.

Roll on a month or so I sell my Fiesta and have some spare money so ordered some upgrades. First was exhaust not sure on how it looks but it’s on lol

Image

Next modification is suspension. The van needs new shocks and top mounts so might as well lower it a bit. Ordered pro sport coil overs and shackle kit with the plates to position the rear wheels in the centre. Not fitted yet but will be soon and picked up a cheap set of wheels for it also.

And the best bit of working in a garage is when a car fails it’s MOT and it’s going to scrap. So got my self a VW Touran for £500 ImageImage. Can now swap a lot of parts over.

Bargain price for that Touran mate. What bits did you swap over in the end?
