    Abims MK1 Caddy V6 4Motion

    Haldex 4motion








    Polo Dash








    312 brakes ready to go on





    New Lower front panel





    The tailgate and all the mounts were previously removed so I’ve welded the mounts back on and fitted a tailgate














    Welded on some mounts for the largest fan I could squeeze in (Passat VR6)





    Engine positioned for clearance before welding up the front mount








    Rad in and some of the plumbing finished

    Wow!

    Saw the first couple of pics, not really paying much attention and assumed it was a later van and those rear arms just bolt up... meh so what

    then the third pic, yep just a modern van...yawn

    fourth pic...expensive shifter hmmmmm

    fifth pic .... some big brakes zzzzzzzzz

    sixth pic ..... WHOA! It's a proper caddy! A Mk1!

    Some decent work going on there, cracking build - watching with interest.

    Thanks for the comments although I cant take credit for most of the hard work carried out on the caddy. I acquired the rolling shell already converted to Haldex.

    I was thinking similar.... fuck, the mk1 has now been pushed beyond the kids and the budget builder's conceivable grasp - the ones built on a shoestring are sadly missing from the forum, when you've got people throwing the equivalent of more than a year worths of my wage at a build then it's time to give up.

    I can't up my game that much, time to admit defeat. Know any decent peugeot forums 13?
