owner's leaflets
« on: November 12, 2011, 09:14:44 PM »
I couldn't think of what to put for the heading.

Here's what I'm looking for.

1. Sureguard leaflet. The one I have is stuck together. On the back it says effective from January 1992. V8508. Preferably I would like the one from 1993, to match my car and not stuck together.

2. Insurance leaflet. Again, this one is stuck together. On the back it says, published April 1992, V7488. Preferably I would like a 1993 one.

3. UK new vehicle warranty and statement. The one I got has been stuck and some of it still is. On the front in the bottom right hand corner is the published date, June 1990, TS1207/10.

 Any other leaflets that would have made available to a buyer in August 1993, when mine was registered.

I have the owner's, audio, security manuals and the dealership service booklet, all neat in a leather Vauxhall wallet.

Can anybody help?

I'm still wanting any of the above and any other leaflets that a salesperson would have given to a Vauxhall Carlton owner in August '93.

I'm still looking for any leaflets, paperwork from August  93 that would have been given to a Carlton owner back then.

They are. I dunno how that got wet, as they were like that when I got them. They were present when I bought the car.

In a plastic wallet. The owner's handbooks reside in a leather Vauxhall wallet. Unfortunately the leaflets didn't fare too well and are only fit for recycling.

They may have been out of the car when they got wet? Rather that than a leaky windscreen seal :o

I think that if you get the paper wet enough then you can peel the pages apart. The challenge is holding them apart while they dry. Look up book restoration on the web.

Nope. A previous owner may have taken the plastic wallet with the handbooks out of the car for a reason, to look something up and they may have got wet then. The handboks were ok, the leaflets weren't.
