    I know it is not a Renault, however it is made in France and has a Renault Alpine 3.0 v6 Turbo engine in her so thought it would be ok to put the progress off my project. This is how she looked the day I bought her.

    Well this is where it all starts, After battling with some french buyers I managed to get hold of my dream car, a Venturi Atlantique300 1997 R, 3.0 single turbo.The car was bought buy the current owner from new and was used as the company demo car for 6 months. It has been stood up for over a year and has not been used properly for about 3 years so is looking a bit sorry for itself.
    She is in need of a fair bit of work, paint work, wheel refurb, and the interior will need a fair bit of work!! However it does drive better than expected so the greasy bit done need as much work as first thought.

    I have stripped the interior to sort out the electrics, the horrid wood which is now piano black and I have been treating the leather which is comming up well apart from the divers seat which will need retriming!!

    image.jpg Seats back from the trimmer, which now have suede centres with a matching roofline. Now just need some time to re fit it all.

    Bit of an update. The interior is now in the car at last as is the new headlining which was a bloody nightmare to install!! However the end result was very good so I am happy!
