Handbook for 1990 excel

Post by Zaphod »

I'm looking for a handbook for my car. It came with the original but at some point in the past it has gotten wet, this is itself would have been recoverable (take the staples out and soak it, the pages will come apart, then dry each page separately and staple it back together) Unfortunately a previous owner tried to pull the pages apart after drying it out. I've recovered the service history pages and most of the PDI page but the rest is pretty much ruined beyond help.
Of all the things I have lost I think I miss my mind the most...

They are about but are charging silly money. £100+

We may have a route to reproduction in the future. A college student was possibly looking to have a go, but it's gone quiet.

Once I have one it should be easy enough to scan and make into a PDF, then any printer should be able to print as many as needed! (Unless Ines also missing a cover.)

Mine has some water damage. I'll have a closer look and see if it may be of use to you as a copy template.
