well as many no i sold my mk1 caddy to get a caddy van to gain money back to put into my project mk1 caddy. i can see already im not going to save much money in the short run (mainly as i decided to keep my shiney wheels) but will in the long term as insurance is around 400 cheaper per year!

anyways found this tdi 53 plate local and got it home and started stripping it out and geting it clean and ready for a good slam! was hoping the coilies would be here by now so hoping for them to arrive early this week coming.

rear axle is off and up at mv's awaiting to be flipped along with new rear wheel bearings and beetle shocks.

not overly much exitement as yet but this is what i got done today

good wash of to get rid of all the bird poop and dirt

managed to polish one side and get the trim nice and black again, paint come up pretty good but forgot to get some pics.

took all the front lights out and cleaned behind the grille section, swapped the standard indicators for some clear ones, took the tdi badge off and painted the vw badge black. and got my paper work to have my personalised plates on too.

mid way
"derek" the tdi van Thebluewagon011

front at some point has had a slight shunt and broke the pass side light so the old owner stuck it all togther with some glue mastic stuff!
standard on the right and bodge on the left!

"derek" the tdi van Thebluewagon016

also started ont he rear doors, debadging taking off the poo stickers and cleaning and swapping plates over, painting the vw badge once again black to match the front, more pics to follow tomo and mid week. should have some good amount of shiney wheel porn tomo too!

yeh u no!

more pics from last couple days, more cleaning and boring pics aswel. coilies should be here mid week and getting the axle back tomo, got the new shorter rear shocks on already to be put back together.

done little detaily bits on my dust caps for the oz turbos. also going to sort the centre caps out and put a logo on those also but still havent got around to taking them off the mk1 and giving them a good wash!

enjoy the pics
"derek" the tdi van Thebluewagon018
"derek" the tdi van Thebluewagon019

painted the rusty rear drums as will be able to see the rust through the wheels and would look pretty shocking so ground them back rust treaded then painted all back up black
"derek" the tdi van Thebluewagon020
"derek" the tdi van Thebluewagon030

rear doors tdi and caddy badge taken off and the vw one painted black to match the front, also removed a couple of random stickers and gave it all a good polish then put my number plate on. thinking about getting some tinting film for the rear lights to darken it down a bit too.
"derek" the tdi van Thebluewagon021

and the interior with my floor mats for the time being out of my mk1 just to tidy it up a bit, will get different ones once i find some good ones. nice and clean now too!

Looks sweet as a nut joe, even though I know it's standard I'm loving the colour.
