Back in the day, Mark Roberts, - who is now a Design Operations Manager at McLaren - had to turn the engineer’s findings into up to date workshop manuals for F1 GTR customers, which immediately got translated to French, German and Italian as well to satisfy everybody.

Mark didn’t find photos good enough and CAD wasn’t there yet either. Instead, he preferred to do line drawings at a remarkable pace.

I love nice concise exploded component drawings like this. They make it so easy to troubleshoot, and see how everything goes together. The pedal assembly in particular shows how a nice layout can simplify a complex assembly with a lot of small parts. I’ve found that a parts fiche is frequently just as useful as a standard shop manual, if not moreso.
