I've just had a sort through a load of stuff I've kept from various magazines over the years. I've kept quite a few maintenance guides mostly from MBUK. There's some good stuff in amongst them and lots of nice pictures of all sorts of retro goodness.

I've started scanning my way through these. I'll include a marker and put a link for a hi-rez jpeg like this: | JPG | and/or | PDF | next to the completed ones. I've also got them all as pdf files so PM me if you'd like a pdf copy. For the time being I'm hosting them on one of my own websites but if anyone would like to put them onto this site then feel free to get in touch.
Obviously there's plenty to get through so let me know if you'd like a scan of any of the following and I'll jump it to the front of the queue.

Here's the list:

Have you managed to scan any of these ?

I would make your way doing them all, if you want send me high resolution (say 300dpi png/tiff I forget how large these will be but thoose formats give the best picture quality for the size, jpg is a bit pants for text) versions and and I'll pdf them up to put in the archive for all to search.


Would be a good collection to the site.

I'll get cracking with the scanning then. I can covert them all to PDF's as that'll probably be the best thing for reading the small text etc.
I'll update when I'm done.

Thanks for your patience.

I wouldn't mind all of them, but in no hurry and will wait as and when you upload them. The one I was really after you've already uploaded (SPuD service). This is a cracking effort on your part and I have to commend you!
