ok so the caddy is now a dead project and I am cutting my losses, reason behind it is i found what i was looking for, a real van! and in the shape of a T4!

she a two and a bit derv burner with 18" and mot, and for the money they wanted i couldn’t say no!
plans..
Lowerrrrr
side windows in front panels, and tinted
rear view windows tinted
rock and roll bed
later bumpers
captains seats

so hear it is and what i have done so far.....

The van.......

so once all the green was washed out came the tools for the next job......

not all that bad tbh.. i got 2 years no claims, but have got the running on my car at the moment, so didnt get the full discount, but managed to get it for £1000 fully comp as a second vehicle.

Haven’t updated this in a long time.
Have done a lot of work on this van and have enjoyed every minute of it.

so far i have had to do a far bit of mechanical work which has slowed down the progress of what i have wanted to do to the van.
i have replaced all 4 shock and now have bilstein lowering shock with new front torsion bar adjusters and 60mm springs on the back.
Front lower arms have had all new bushes pressed in along with drop links roll bar bushes, and bumpstops.
Discs and pads were also replaced due to the discs being solid rust when i got the van.
full service with glow plugs and forte diesel treatment.
had to also replace the power steering pipe, belt and tensioner.

Colour coded the light plinth as i didn’t like it black

bra fitted and lows

inside the van
new ply line floor and walls carpeted
vinle floor
rock and roll bed
sink and 2 ring hob

i hope to finish my units and extened them to end of van, more to come.............
