Right seeing as i havent got a thread on here about this caddy then i might aswell do one.

When i bought it it was a bit dirty and paintwork was not as shiney but spent a bit of time machine polishing it but still need to full machine polish it all up and treat the leather and carpets and sort out a few issues i have with it.

After i cleaned it for the first time:














And the best part of the car i think by far is the interior:




Have got alot of plans for it but duno when i will get them done by as spending alot of this summer on my enduro bike


Plan list:

- Black head lining
- Subtle Audio install
- New wheels
- Lower more
- New standard chrome surround single light grill
- Cross hair headlights
- Carbon front CL spoiler
- Carbon rear arch spats
- Small bumper on front
- Roll arches


So what u recon?

Graeme
