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!
