A Volkswagen That is Oh So JDM

Sacrilege! The VW Caddy is an awesome looking car and doesn't need much to look hellasweet... I did heaps anyway :p

The Friday Night Likes #FNL #FNLCustoms is a monthly Instagram competition that brings out some of the best customisers in the business. God knows what I was doing there LOL!...

Seriously though, I decided to enter the September Caddy Build Off and realised that I was going to have to lift my game if I was to compete on any serious level.

Custom Deep dish wheels are one thing, but a full build was going to require a new level of commitment and to be honest I was pumped. I was psyched.  I was ... oh who am I kidding, I was in over my head.

Work Wheels Really Worked.

Say that five times fast! 😉 

I knew that this Caddy was going to sit on a set of my custom deep dish work meister/SP1 style wheels but I decided that this was going to be the overall theme for this build and set about making my plans.

Here is a rundown of what I used to make this custom Volkswagen Caddy:

  • Wheels - custom made (Here's the article in case you missed it - HERE)
  • Engine - from a Mitsubishi Double Shotz (read the guide HERE)
  • Canopy - from a Mercedes UniMog (or whatever the hell that thing is called)
  • Work branding - hand painted (and not bad either thank you very much)
  • Intercooler - I used a Stapler (read the full how to guide HERE)

I am pleased to report that this build placed third in the Friday Night Likes Competition which was an incredible result and I am well humbled and extremely stoked by it all.

Can't wait for the next one!
