my biggest problem is finding the time as it gets dark so early and ive only got the drive to work on.

not like you with your garage!

hoping to get the bay and the interior ready for paint before the summer, than i get started on the fun bit, the back end Twisted Evil

I recon you should try and work in a 911 style filler flap on the wing.


I've been flat out with work mate. Been up scotland all this week, but trying to get back in time for the meet.

been working on the caddy a bit more today, heres some photo's;

engine bay is done for now, next stage is filler but its too cold for that, so just chucked some paint on to stop it rusting

project rust bucket - mk1 caddy - Page 2 Picture040

just to remind myself that all that work HAS made a difference!

project rust bucket - mk1 caddy - Page 2 Picture010

my chassis legs were rusted under the engine mounts so i have cut the rot out and welded new metal in

project rust bucket - mk1 caddy - Page 2 Picture039

started cutting the bed out this afternoon before it got too dark. seems a shame to cut such a straight bed up but its for a good cause!

all comments appreciated!

duuuude if u can drill the spot welds out take the bed out in a big piece then ile buy it off u to make mine more mint, other wise ile have to go for option 2, which is secret but expensive Wink

all the effort is worth it in the long run, especially once u see a picture of how it all started when u got her home. keep up the good work fellow caddy owner
