My Caddy!!!!!!!! --- Crash Pics

Post by sam_w on Mon Dec 08, 2008 1:36 pm

my first car and project all rolled into one!!
so far has been lowered, de bumpered, been treated to a new stereo and bucket seats and thats about it. and get rid of the truckman top as soon as i possibly can!!!!

the plan is to go for a caddy racer look , coilovers on front, adjustable dampers on the back, anti roll-bars front and rear, rear disc conversion, 288mm g60 brakes up front to get it ready for either a g60 or 1.8 16v engine swap

for the exterior im going for mars red and gti style stripes down the side with carbon fibre where-ever it'll go

interior is planned to be alcantara, carbon fibre and possibily a little chrome (door handles, window winders etc)
