The Tank Museum apparently sells a selection of these for various vehicles. Never checked out which though.

I misread it as "Centaur Maintenance".

There are quite a few, including The Millennium Falcon among others. From what I've read the Cent one will induce nightmares. It was/is a superb MBT, but a fitters pain, not designed ergonomically when it came to servicing.

Got it for my birthday in July  Cheesy

It's very interesting, being both a history of the fine vehicle with some practical guide to actually maintaining one.

The next logical step is to go out and buy one of the things. I await pictures.

Prices seem a bit hard to come by, but from what I have seen, not stupid money, 10s of thousands, so around the price of a high end saloon car, not a sports car.

I think one of these would run to more than a few 10s of thousands ... manual is only 15.99 though!
