1988 VW Caddy 1.6 petrol, 5 speed, 156,000 miles, 11 months MOT
It was a normal Caddy until I got hold of it, since then I have been tinkering a bit:
See new photos in the gallery showing it without the shed!
quite new Sonar 175/50/14 stretched over Borbet T 14”x8” (offset ET10)front springs choppedrear axel flipped with Beetle rear shocksMagnaflow stainless steel back box, hidden under the flat bed.Engine is standard 1.6 litre petrol with a new starter motor and battery (last month)New cambelt and water pump (last year)Gearbox is from a Golf Mk2 GTi with lightened flywheel and new GTi clutch (6 months ago)Other mechanical oily bits changed here and there like front lower ball joints, brake padsSeat is the rear bench with cup holders from a Jaguar X-type, with lap belts (stock seats included in sale)Interior mostly standard. Gear knob factory fit obviously.Sony CD head unit with AUX input (no bluetooth, sorry!), pair 6x9” under the seatLED rear lights and indicators with ballastHiD front headlights with ballastBBS front splitter, a bit split, but then they all do that Sir.Bad bits: fuel gauge lies, a lot. Heater fan doesn’t blow, heater does do hot or cold though. Dash lights up when you thump it, sometimes. Pick-up bed is a bit rusty and scabby but then it is 25 years old.
Car has been polished, patina’d and lacquered, custom painted bonnet with pinstripe and laced. Stock bonnet included.
Oh yeah, and a shed.Went to BugJam this year, didn’t want to stay in a tent so I knocked up a custom-fit shed. Overall it is 5ft wide and 8ft long including the over-the-cab Luton bit. Sloping front roof for aerodynamic efficiency, obvs.Inside is 6ft to the roof.The shed is built from CLS with 8mm T&G panelling, OSB3 floor, OSB2 ceiling, all waterproof glued and screwed together.The outside floor, front wall and roof are sprayed with anti-stone chip paint.As far as I can see, it’s rain proof, moving or not!Full size single bed with very comfy memory foam mattress, can fold away against the ceiling to make a bit of living room.The window opens, with a fold-down beer table that covers the whole window when shut, essential for early morning sun after a late night. Say no more.Yale type night-latch lock with 2 keys.
Shed is bolted to the pick-up bed with 2x M12 bolts at the front and located by metal box section at the back. See the gallery for photos without the shed!
The shed is a work in progress, or bare canvas depending on your point of view!
You need to come and look at it to believe it, and recognise it for the genius that it is.
