Here You go some pictures of my basic 1.9 TD cl Caravelle! Its the most basic one i have ever seen the only nice bit is the fact it has power steering and its good for a conversion because there are no vents in the roof but still has the nice linings!



Un modified apart from the spray tint on the rear lenses and the clear front indicators, hope thats ok:ILU:

the storey so far:


Got the windows tinted and put a set of golf alloys onto her last summer , i also whipped out all the rear seats and made a large double fold away bed so me and the wife could get away for the odd weekend


I need to replace both wings before i paint her, i am thinking of maybe an A team theme??
and lowering her...not quite sure how much..any advice gratefully recieved on lowering or the easiest way to do the wings..



this my other passion.. I have a mount to carry the scoot on the rear...i am bit unsure if this will work with lowering though??
looking forward to getting her road ready and having some fun this summer:ILU:


Thanks in advance for any advice ;)

This is my van! I've owned it for almost a year and done nothing except put the 3 seats in the back and put in some plastic panels in that someone passed onto me. Tomorrow everything comes out in preparation for the insulating. Being a girlie, a kindly chap that I've never met before but was recommended to me by a friend is coming to assist with anything I may find too challenging. How embarrassing! Huffing and puffing in the back of a sweaty van with a strange man! Wish me luck.....









This my back end, minus VW badge that was nicked, got a T4 forum badge on order

Here's mine, The day I bought it... ... go team blue!!!!!!!!




Then I got out the lowering stick and beat it all over.... oh yeah, and some indicators, a grille, rear clusters and wind deflectors....
and then some old T :c T side swiped me on a dual carridge way slip road, still, only a small dent!!! lost all my no claims tho'

And nearly as it is now, some different indicators and my private plates... still got the dent!!

Looking for some rims, and some.... well, the list goes on forever it seems!
