So got stuck into stripping the inside of the mk3 golf for the black trim to change the blue in the vento, still have to wrap the rear shelf and change the dash. Massive improvement already :)

Thanks to fatman of the site I've a 90bhp tdi conversion from a mk3 for my vento bought so should be a good upgrade from the 75hp aaz engine

Also decided on the colour I want my car which is steel blue like my first vento I learned to drive in.

So will get the bay done while the engine is out :)
