Hello all.

I am finally making some progress on the update / revise of the RSTCA 
My hat is off to Glen WIlson for all the effort and time he must have 
put in on the first go around.

Seeing Glen's posting on the original site of a Service Manual 
Supplement got me thinking. If we could provide a database of 
copyright-free older manuals we would be doing the worldwide Rover 
community a good service. The moment any new Citroen DS owner joins 
their list they are immediately directed to the vast database of FREE 
downloadable parts manuals, service manuals, bulletins, etc. for the 
various DS models. These people will even burn it all onto a disc for 
you if you pay for postage. These files are invaluable.

I think for the greater Rover good we should do this -- but it is a 
large undertaking and I could not do it alone. I can host this stuff on 
my server and put it together into a clean, easily accessible format -- 
but if someone knows of a way to digitally scan many pages at a time, 
the job might be feasible. I can then convert these scans to 
downloadable PDF files which could be accessed from the site. I have 
the factory Rover 2000 Service Manual, an Owner's Manual, and P2 books 
(which may have copyright issues that would need sorting as I had to 
purchase them from an official Rover Club). This stuff should be free, 
dagburnit!  Its tough enough to keep these lovely cars running. ;-)

The work in progress...
