I was browsing for X stuff on ebay and came across a guy selling reprint manuals and wiring diagrams.
Has anyone here bought one of these? If so, are they legible and well-printed? They seem to be a good price, hard to go wrong for $7.00...

Its a good copy. The text and diagrams are very clear. The pictures are a little dark but you can see what is important. Well worth the money.

... but we have lots of drawings, especially for late models, online here in Best Of... and you can download what you need.

I wonder if anyone who has the ebay ones has compared them and can state why one might be better, easier, more accurate, etc. than the other...

The seller as a 100% rating and seems to have sold lots of stuff... which is a good indication also.

Sorry I can't help ya...

I used it yesterday, tracking down a turn signal problem. It's good, the only complaint I have is some of the pictures don't match my '87 Bertone. Best example of that is the relay/fuse panel. Yes Tony, I have looked at the "best of" wiring diagrams, and they're good, only I haven't been able to figure out how print them, and it's kind of hard to drag my desktop computer out to the garage.
