Hi Gaye

Used this great resource for the first time yesterday with a group of Motor Engineering students. Unfortunately it seems the price list for Brake Pads and windscreen wipers isnt here. One student looked the price up on google so that he could do the work! Hopefully you might still have the missing pages.

Was good to use as a review assessment.
