    Harry, for those of us who haven't been following from the start any chance of a couple of shots of the side / back / inside of your van?

    I'm told it's one of the best

    Got to say I'm inspired by your strive for perfection

    Made a start at gutting whats left of the interior of the van.
    Pulled the interior loom out too. Going to try find a new interior loom because its a bit butchered for my liking, someone fitted a cobra alarm at one stage in its life and its just a mess.20180331_125430.jpg

    I also went bald headed at the tt to get the loom out of it. Not the easiest job. The loom does not separate so I had to cut unnecessary bits off it such as all the wiring for the doors and all the other wiring for the back of the car. Only back end piece I saved was for the fuel pump. I then had to cut the bulk head with a tin snips to get the loom through.
    Made a start on unravelling that horrible bastard loom tape so I can start stripping away unneeded wires.

    Maybe Im a bit deluded, but I can see this taking too long to be running. Lengthening the loom to be tucked might be another story though......

    If it's gonna take ages you may as well tuck it...

    I think/hope I'm doing the right thing here with this loom so far

    I started nearest the fusebox end of the loom, unravelled the black tape as I went, cut unneeded plugs along the way, chased back each wire from the plugs and cut them out.
    Off the top of my head I have the following bits cut out of the loom; right and left door connections, airbag ecu plug, dash buttons (heated seats, traction control, hazards) heater matrix controls bar 2 plugs, abs, right side headlights and indicators. I think thats it for the moment

    I plan on separating the headlight wiring from the caddy loom and adding it in to this loom.

    Heres how the loom looks at the minute. I'm almost down to the engine loom on its own.

    Here's all the junk I've cut out of it.

    Didn't bother with work today so I spent 6 hours in the shed on my knees snipping at the loom.
    Managed to get the rest of the aircon wires out, the other headlight, horn, SAI, dsg and a few other bits, cant think off the top of my head.
    Also managed to split the loom in 3 pieces which I didnt realise could be done.
    Piece number 1
    20180405_174457.jpg
    The sai, evap, dsg was cut off this.
    The big plug for the ecu, throttle pedal, ecm, lambdas, a vac valve which Ive no idea what it does (maybe to do with the sai), 2 plugs which im unsure about and the starter remain on it.

    Piece 2.
    20180405_175436.jpg
    The engine loom. I havent gone near this with the snips yet. Theres not that much to take off this, if even anything at all.

    Piece 3
    20180405_182635.jpg
    Power/earths/fuses etc....
    A huge amount came off this, all the convenience bits basically.
    The fan plugs, fan control, alternator, starter relay, remains of the steering column plugs and clock plugs is all thats left on this.

    Heres all the loom plugged together

    I may not have that much extending to do for tucking, there seems to be plenty of length on the engine loom, may just mean moving the ecu to the passenger side

    As the old saying goes.....
    2019 will be a year of great progress for the caddy 20190101_212507.jpg

    Progress went in reverse last year. I took it off the axle stands, put it on dollies and shoved it in a corner.

    My last post said 2019 is the year for the van, so far things aren't going great. Went to make a start on getting the van ready to be booked in to wire the engine back in February but ended up in hospital to have a large tumour removed from my spinal cord. 7 week stay in hospital with no feeling below the waist and wheelchair bound. Literally have to learn to walk again. Been out of work for 3 months now but Ive been hobbling around on crutches.
    Only productive thing ive done this year is clean my shed
    20190518_152218.jpg

    Put the caddy back on axle stands
    20190518_152524.jpg

    Bought some R32 bits

    Got my hands on cruise control from an ibiza
    20190525_172807.jpg

    Got 6N2 gti climatronic and clocks
    20190525_173143.jpg20190525_173101.jpg

    Also managed to buy a polo classic after searching for months for one with all the electric bits. Going to use the door looms, dash loom, fuse box and pretty much most of the interior from it in the van, will also powdercoat the subframe, wishbones, hubs and slam panel in this while the van is away for paint.

    Today I made a bit of a start.
    Emptied the contents of the van and gave it a hoover
    20190525_173225.jpg20190525_173329.jpg20190525_170644.jpg

    Then made a start at stripping out the polo passenger door loom. Couldnt do much apart from fit the central locking from this door into the caddy, had to swap over the part that catches the A6 handle also. The window regulator in this door is knackered, so need to get it fixed.

    Hoping to get the dash loom out of the polo next week and get it offered up to the van. I want everything in place so I can book it to have the engine wired up. Need to find a caddy rear loom that has the central locking plugs also.
