That is one nice crib there! Looks splendid and will look even more of a posh pad with a restored Venturi outside. Very good work.

Sorry, it's a rubbish joke but I just can't resist making it!

Hello,

I have been working on it over xmas and every opportunity I can since then. I now have the dash in and most of the wiring finished and have started putting the interiour back in.

I'm away now for just over a week snowboarding or rather drinking due to the lack of snow but then will continue when i return, with the aim of having it on the road for end of March if possible.

Finally took a couple of photos today.

I have used 2mm thick mass damping matt on almost all of the inside including the roof. Then added 10mm closed cell form on top.

The headling was then stuck in place and some of the trim panels fitted.

Also got the new headlights fitted.

Now waiting for more parts to arrive this week.

Excellent works here. Looking for some help on the fuel pump on my early Venturi 200 and see you had a similar problem which you must have fixed. I too have had great 'fun' removing the fuel tank. Once, eventually, I got the tank out and removed the pump, I also found, like you, that the hose inside the long aluminium tube is no longer connected to the pump at the base of that tube. But try as I might I cannot split the pump and its nylon(?) insert from the bottom of the tube. Do you have a cunning plan you could share? Buy a new one?! Many thanks. Tristan
