hi all!, just bough a '89 diesel caddy in bright yellow/green(ex AA maybe??).it's suprisingly solid underneath so im gonna get it recoated before any major rot sets in. tailgate is bowed a bit so i maybe on the look out for a better one. rear bumper sections are a bit dodgy to, so im looking for some new ones. dash has seen better days also, so i'd like to replace it, maybe using one from a different car??. got a few mods in mind: 1.9dt engine, 3/4 piece slider, fit out bed with ally chequer, oh and a re-spray is definitely on the cards; bright red maybe??. any helpfull advise/comments you guys can give would be much appreciated. . . . .

ok, sliders are available thru our esteemed team leader and administrator, rear bumper leaves you with a few options - TRY and find the original two pieces in worthy condtion or have a look/ask around for a caddy sport item - better looking IMO if you must have a rear bumper. or smooth the rear and don't bother. or find a rollpan.....getting any ideas yet?;)

alloy chequerplate is expensive 'tho one or two lads have had their trucks done for reasonable costs (tho seems to be done as a one-off by friends/acquaintances who never want to do it again[xx(]).

as for a respray, down to personal choice but red? must be another slightly more inspiring colour you'd rather have? no? red it is then.:D

if you are new to the forum (i.e havent been lurking for a while) then so some searches for how to's, where-to-gets etc. if somethings not on here it aint worth knowing (or hasnt been done yet[:p])

finally 1.9 tdi would be ACE - there is one on the scene tho the name of the tuners who did it and owns the truck escapes me - by all accounts a very rapid 200bhp truck.[8D]
