Well it died at the end of October.. trashed my sump on the bypass and seized the engine so now time for a new engine build and some bay work - This is most definitely diesel power.. With a set up similar to this -



Any way to prove i am still getting on with the caddy abs haven't just left it in the corner un loved - a bit of progress -

Well got bored of having windiws that didnt open so got my self a couple of mk2 golf rear mechs and motors, a guide from reg a couple of switches

And after a day messing around with the caddy -








Working electric windows! Best mod ever! 100% recomend it no more opening the door to place my order at maccys!!

Also colour coded my cabrio mirrors and fitted them, now i can actually see behind me!

Resprayed my wiper arms and fitted areo blades, another fiver well spent i can wipe rain from my window now!

And finally changed my dash vents to the black plastic ones :)






Gave it a quick clean and stood it at the lincoln camper day, snazzy :)

well first really run this weekend, Lincoln to Watergate bay in Cornwall with a stop off in birth Devon for reg to tweek me GTD 


made it down there fine but it developed an alternator squeak this was sorted at reg's and got the engine running sweet like a completely different machine 


set off again on our way, got 20 miles further on my trip and this happened........  



the alternator noise came back and destroyed the pulley. with no alternator in the middle of no where I had no other option 

however no way was this going on so had to wait a further 2 hours 



finally got to the place we were staying at 19 hours after setting off! 

had arranged a new alternator in Plymouth for Tuesday however mk2joe and me dad have sourced one and have ended up down here too, hopefully have it sorted as soon as we can find a new belt. 


on a plus side got the cover made - 


well that's all for now hopefully it's better news next time!

glad to hear you passed, get some shackles and you can adjust them to what you need, or make your own

you could try extended shackles, that would bring it up a touch and should miss the wheel arch
