would people be interested in this kind of document, i dont mind writing up some docco and taking some pics, on doing simple service things on falcons such as changine brake pads, changin fuel filter, oil filter checking spark plugs and leads etc.

basically things that people pay for in a service that are really easy to do.

comments?

Nah photos from a member would be useful, as they can add the little added touches in mspaint.
But id say go for it, save me spending money paying for people to do something that i could be doing.
