looks much better now (nearly as cool as mine lol) is that rear tyre the wrong way round?


One thing that may be an improvement is a bubble rear window with a sticker I can do you some sort of deal that wont involve to much cash my way.

looking at it yes i have the wheel on the wrong side, trust you to point that out lol was the first one i see when i got home so i put that one on Laughing

hmmmmm that bubble rear window sounds pretty retro, what sticker does it have? would you swap the slider as a px?.......

finally got the revo's on over the week end after having large amount of confusion on how to run early carriers but got around that problem in the end with help from some peoples. had to run the 15mm spacers on the front to clear the calipers even after i shaved them down slightly. i think they sit quite nice against the slight flaired arches.
the back sits about 15mm higher than the front still as i decided not to run the 1inch blocks on the rear for this week just to see how much scrapage i get as i also put the 15mm spacers on the rears. any way heres a couple piks i just took, its been raining all week end and i just got home from work so excuse the dirtyness :wub: and yes there is a big dent on my passenger wing from were someone hit it in the car park at work :angry:

Looking good joe Cool .

Q.
what tyres you running? they look wrong and a nice tyre will help with curing arch scrubbage.

also, the dent does'nt look that bad, remove wheel, inner arch plastic.

then run a hammer, rubber handled side into the area to gently push the dent back out. take your time as patients is the key to success Wink

anyways time for a bit of a long overdue update, got my chrome bumper a couple of weeks back, and also some brand new fully black sun visors, as previous i only had one cream one.
after seeing the chrome bumper with the small cl chin spoiler it looked like the number plate oversized it, so i chanced it and got a duck bill and i think it looks much better
also after a few weeks of adapting got some 1inch axle blocks made which gave me an excuse to wind my coilies down a bit more
enjoy....

thought it may be tme to bring this thread back to life again! as i finaly decided to turn the "rustowagen" project into the show truck i decided to turn some love back to the good ol' grey beast. unfortinatly it had been neglected for a couple of months as i was so involved with the other project, so i decided it was time to give it some more power so i bought an aaz from tom out of dads old "tarmac sniffer". had to say its wasnt the funnest of drives home!
mk1 caddy - Page 3 Thecaddy297

dad done the conversion for me in 2 days! have no nder bonnet pictures yet will get one once ive given it another good srub under there.

also on the look out for some seats to match my door cards for more of a retro feel to match everything else
mk1 caddy - Page 3 Thecaddy236

not really feeling the mk2 gti seats anymore
mk1 caddy - Page 3 Cambsmeetinterior-1
also going for a new look for 09, was planning on running my wellers but then decided they were to small and the sump would have taken a beating, would be reving real hard also. so the wellers went to a new owner yesterday and i also picked up my new rimmage. going to split them, colour coded centres and repolish the dishes up, one has minor curbing and one has a fair bit so im on the look out for 2 dishes, or may make the bad 7's into 8's for the rear?

mk1 caddy - Page 3 Thecaddy312

test fitting today before the revo's come off for the gti winters...
mk1 caddy - Page 3 Thecaddy313
mk1 caddy - Page 3 Thecaddy316

put some 15mm spacers out back to kick them out to run inline with the fronts

they are polished lee, well the faces are but the inner sections of the spokes are still silver, would look good all polished but would be a right b*tch to keep them that way!

quick photoshop tom done for me

Look sweet m8, as i knew they would haha

i like the colour coding maybe when you get some centre caps pinstripe the original OZ logo that should be on them might look cool?
