Cheers. Its proving to be a pain to fit as the crash bar needs trimming. I've run out of Dremel metal cutoff wheels so can't cut the last section out!

You need to get some coilovers on as everything looks a million times better when the van is nearer the floor.
I have a complete Caddy Cross bodykit on order. It looks a bit rubbish on the standard van but I am 100% sure it will work on mine.

I've got the Caddy Cross wheel arches on order and fingers crossed they are only a few days away!

KW are building a kit as we speak and should be getting fitted towards the end of next week.

Today was another little job sorted. Wanted to fit some sort of sill protection as easy to catch evidenced by all the scratches from previous owners. Thought I'd try some of my 3m 1080 carbon vinyl and I reckon it looks pretty good.

Very nice, I always wanted to do that but never got around to it.
Looks well and serves a valuable purpose also. :D

That's quite some impressive skills you have there, it's going to be stunning when it's finished.

Ifcrik - The original bumpers are from a 2011> Caddy and a 2011> Golf MK6 R, both from Ebay.

Thanks to Banditbarron I removed the B pillars to wrap them in 1080 carbon. I think the plan will be to get these done in the real stuff in the future - the vinyl looks ok but its never going to look as good as real carbon.

FYI, the B pillars are simple to remove - put the window down, pull the rubber window seal out from the bit near the B pillar to expose 2 Phillips screws. Undo these and then just wiggle it free from the rubber seal.
