Plus gas is much better than wd40, diesel isn't bad either....apart from the smell.
It's coming on....looking forward to seeing the end result one day.

Keep up the good work - we need this one back on the road. If it's ready before winter sets in we could try and arrange a Venturi meet, possibly somewhere central like Oxford.

I'm taking mine to the Goodwood Revival on Sept 8th. Just mentioning it in case anyone else is going.

So pleased to see this one being resurrected. Great stuff. Thankfully it's new home in Oxfordshire is a long way from the salty sea air. Let's hope it's waxoyled, garaged and kept off salty winter roads.

Just as long as they keep it away from Oselli! They gave Venturi 300 owners a such bad time with their poor service and lack of knowledge of these nice cars, French fettlers Tony Boulet and Serge Lenoir have sorted many of Oselli's f ups, they couldn't even fit the right plugs!

Nice work as always by Lee :up

Progress has been painfully slow...down to me really and workload...But...Lots of shiny things now ready for assembly.
I have two sets of adjustable dampers if anyone is interested. These all come with the new RATS' up-rated bottom bush that is shared with the GTA610 fronts.
