Just thought i would say a quick hello.
Ive just bought my first caddy and as its my first ever project car i will be asking some silly questions but will try to keep that to a minimum.
The caddy isnt in to bad a condition is just needing a bit of tlc and alot of time, as im a novice.
The brakes, suspension, engine need a overhaul but thats easy, the main thing is the body is solid just the dents and scrapes up the side that really need alot of work. :)

Will now try to post pics hope this works wish me luck.

I was thinking of leaving it the way it is and go for a sort of rat look on it but not sure.
My freinds a sign writer and is excellent with the airbrush so might get somthing a bit special on it. :thumbs_up

I was thinking that too! I suppose I could be classed as either coming from Newcastle, too far from the southern shows but closer to the one Scottish show that I can't go to!

caddy19- that front bumper is just a standard black plastic one with the black plastic pulled off leaving the metal rail behind it exposed!- easy enough to do with a crow bar :D

I've been using my '89 diesel caddy for my daily commute for the last 13 months, and have enjoyed every minute of it. I have done the 5 speed conversion, but I am now on the lookout for a 1.9TD to give it a bit more grunt.
