Got my caddy lowered today. With a vmaxx coilover lowering kit.

Iโ€™m thinking the back could go a bit lower! But I will give it a couple of weeks and see what the ride like.
Itโ€™s starting to look good

Thanks Liam
I'm trying to get it away from the BG look ๐Ÿ˜‰
But I think the colour is a dead giveaway ๐Ÿ˜‚

Nice looking van mate, Iโ€™ve got an Ex BG maxi too. Saw one near ours a while back, that had been colour coded, with a colour coded roof box on. My jaw hit the floor!

But the best thing I got done was fitting the Audi TT air vents.
(Well I think it the best thing I've done todayImage)
Image
I started with this and had to adapt it so the TT air vents fit
Image
Had to do a lot of cutting to get to look like thisImage
Image
When I finished all 4 I put them in.
Image
Image
And what a difference it makes.
It totally changed the lookImage

Did you have to remove the door cards to change the door handles or is there enough slack in the cable to pop them out?

I had to remove the door cards to get to the screws that hold the handles in.
There probably is enough slack but I didn't want to risk braking the cables.
