The speed that some of you chaps get stuff done is impressive, makes me feel like a right lazy beggar!

Looks like you have done a great job with your caddy. I finished mine around 5 years ago and it just sits in the garage now. I've Only done 600miles in it in the 10 years i've owned it lol. They are great fun though. There are alot more panels available for them now than there were when I did mine. I had to make the cross members, back panel and bulkhead panel from scratch but you can buy it all now. How long has it taken you to get this far? It took me nearly 4 years to get to the paint stage 😂

Loved every minute of it and actually bought another one. A real gem! Totally original rot free more or less one owner 54k and full detailed history and its just marvellous. Paint peeled and faded nut like new inside and will look brand new after a respray! Have you any pics of yours

A few photos of mine. I've now got a very rusty bay window camper to keep me busy too.

My intention was always to put a 1.8 20v turbo in mine but I never got round to doing it. Its a great conversion though and fairly straightforward to do too. I should get on and do it now really before the donor cars start getting hard to find.
The other caddy you've got sounds like a good find, any photos of it?
