Man! You DO have a tough job! But I wouldn't worry too much until the U.S.S. Enterprise actually pulls into your garage. And if that happens, you're probably gonna need that manual. (:

Haynes guided me through some trouble a few years ago, but that was a lowly paperback edition.

Fortunately for you, there are no grease nipples on the outside!

Come on Murphy!
WWMD?

(What Would Macguyver Do?)

Is it sad that I am a little jealous if you actually got that book! Although with out wanting to pass into total nerdom it's the Mark D I would want, possibly even the E.

That's quite enough Trekkieness I'm off to kill the guy in the red top!

Hidden depth my man, hidden depths……..

Karen,
Me thinks that I’ll have to do a little more tiding in there before she docks.

Clif,
Paperback or no, I used to treat Haynes as the bible with the wrecks I used to run.

Keith,
Ah grease nipples – always found that such an evocative term, guess I’m truly a grease monkey and there’s no hope left…

Damn,
You always knew as soon as they materialised that the ‘new face’ in the red shirt was doomed. MacGyver eh? Not sure that even his little inventions would help me here! Oh and to spare your misery I don’t really own the book, just manuals for thunderbirds 1 to 5 and detailed plans for the death star…….

Humorous regards,
John

Original Star Trek is definately the best ever. Fact.

This post has opened up a whole heap of questions for me...(which I shall keep to my nerdy self)
Is there one for The Tardis?
I am quite intrigued to read it!

Wow, the Starship Enterprise repair manual. Wonder if they have one for the Float Tube Cumberland? LOL

Moschops,
Not sure about the Tardis, would the book be bigger than the box it came in?

Mark,
Had to look the Cumberland up, going to be a thin manual LOL
