The Shadow Owners' Companion
wonder how many cars we have left and who is to look after them. The
last Shadow had been made, registered and was on the road by the time
that many young mechanics today were born! There is also the aspect
that with the enormous number of cars being produced, there are simply
back I had emailed you asking if you ever made a book, Which you were
kind enough to let me know about, and so I ordered it right away. When
it got here I read the thing cover to cover. My Shadow was even kind
enough to develop a problem in the braking system so I actually got
some 'hands on' with the car. The problem was fixed, the book was around
$40.00 and the repair was free (thanks to the book). God only knows
what the dealer or mechanic would have charged. The book is a great
publication with not only very helpful quick simple repair info but
your humor in it is rather funny in a subtle way."
must have received the book the day after I ordered it. I did not expect
to receive it so soon. I have owned my Shadow for 30 years (Oct. 1976),
however your book provided MUCH informative information. The book arrived
in perfect condition. "
arrived very quickly and in perfect condition. I could not be happier
with my purchase. I have read it from cover to cover and can't wait
to tackle some of the jobs described in the articles."
is well written and simple to follow. Congratulations on a job well
book is clear, specific, engagingly
you're aiming to run your Shadow on a budget, it's worth buying a copy
of Jon Waples' new book The
Shadow Owners' Companion. Short
on colour, it has a mine of information on DIY maintenance and you'll
soon recoup the £25 price."
am impressed with the detail and straightforwardness/practicality of
book, it arrived in perfect condition and has been a great help, thank
you for taking the time to write it so that we can all enjoy our cars
that bit more. ...any help with these beauties is always welcome."
"Shadow Owner's Companion" was received in good order and
has already travelled with me as 'bed side' reading... I'm very used
to pre-war British cars but this is my first foray into a more modern
venture. Your book has helped significantly in demystifizing the complexity
of the underhood part of my Corniche. "
clear, step-by-step pictures and illustrations, Jon demystifies the
mechanical eccentricities of the most maintenance intensive Rolls-Royce
of the 20th century. The owner enthusiast with reasonable mechanical
aptitude and a little patience will be rewarded with an understanding
of the many need-to-know topics not covered by the factory workshop
book is excellent and it arrived quickly and in perfect condition."
would like to commend you on producing a truly valuable guide for taking
care of one's Shadow. For those of us who like the maintain our vehicles,
your book will go a long way to satisfying that need."
