Hello!
This will be my second car to make a rat out of! :rlftw
i bought this Caddy -88 very cheap from the capital of Sweden, the guy who sold it did'nt know anything about it so i was really lucky :D
it did'nt run very well and the problem was the plugs, bought 4 new ones so now it runs like a dream :tu
Image
Bought a Gem Top very cheap and stickerbombed one window
Image
Image
little diffrent here, stock vs flipped axle :ghey
Image
Then it snowed :hmm
Image
Image
this would be perfect :bow
Image
Currently im waiting to get it past the inspection i tried one time but it was too low for the brake tester so i need to higher it then do the inspection. After that i can start doing some more serious things to it:D
a roofrack is on the way and then maybe do something to the hood, not grinding it but something like burning it or pouring acid on it. i still don't know what to do exactly and now that the roads here in sweden looks like crap it will take some time for some things.and the theme on this build is Rat Fink so i got some cool stuff on the way :aviator
hopefully there will be an update as soon it gets approved at the inspection here in sweden! :cheers

Take the bonnet off and drag it down the road, should get some interesting effects!

Love the purple roof, is it a metalflake?

Haha that's a nice idea but there is one problem with that :( its winter here in Sweden and its gonna be that for atleast 3-4 months forward so that's maybe one thing on the future list to do :D
the roof is metalflaked right!
