Bit of an update, I have done a few bits and bob to the Venturi one of them being the job of changeling the windscreen! This was a tricky job just to find the glass first let alone fitting it, so after a chat with the very helpful MJG (who happened to have a spare screen in the loft) we did a deal where I fitted a new alarm on his car and he sorted me with a screen. My friend who fits car window for a living kindly fitted it for me, so the car looks super mint with a nice new genuine glass.

Did you know Stunned Monkey has quite a bit of genuine Venturi 300 glass in his loft and was trying to move it on a short while ago at a very good price as he needs the room. His haul includes several front screens, rear windows and sides all are Venturi labelled and in the proper green tint for the 300. Front and rear glass should fit other Venturi such as 200, 260 & 400's but may be wrong colour as 200 & 260 have bronze tint.

If you have the room you might fancy a haggle with him for the lot?

Stated the interior refurb just befor prescott, which was a stupid idea!, getting it retrimed so started by ripping out the tired roof lining! The centres of the seats are now going to be cream suede, not sure wether to go for the dimond stitching pattern like a Bentley??

So after removing the whole interior to change the carpet to black carpet as the cream is a nightmare to keep clean! I have no put it all back in again so I could take the car to prescott like every year!

Car was looking fabulous. Andy did a great job with the paint and I'm looking forward to seeing the interior when you've done it.
