GTD40 Original builders manual.

I've just consolidated my two attics into one and in the process I found the original GTD build manual. My plan is to try and find if it can be reproduced and, as everything in life, how much. If you want one, just reply and once I have an idea of how many want one we can go forward from there.

Re: GTD40 Original builders manual.

Hi David
I'd like one. Wouldn't mind an electronic version, but that's a lot of work.
Regards
Stephen

Re: GTD40 Original builders manual.

I am sure they used to be here in PDF format somewhere. Paul Thompson had them.

If not. I still have the PDFs (if we are allowed to put up on the forum, I will check with Ron)

Re: GTD40 Original builders manual.

Correct me if I'm wrong (again!) but was the GTD the predecessor of the CAV car? If the answer is yes, would having this manual offer anything to CAV owners especially of the early cars?

Re: GTD40 Original builders manual.

I had it reproduced by the old Kinko's. As I recall it cost me about $15.00 US. I also have it on cd and can copy the cd for the cost of packaging and shipping. I also have a piece on rebuilding the power brake units, how I lowered my floor under the seats. and some other odds and ends.

Re: GTD40 Original builders manual.

I am sure we have all got them, but of course they have been long superceded by ongoing developments over the last 25 years.

Re: GTD40 Original builders manual.

Pierre,

It would be good to have manual and drawings for GTD in PDFs. Can I have those for my GTD?

Thanks
Yuji
