    Whilst I had a pretty extraordinary and almost all-access tour of the Saab factory in Trollhattan last year, the one area I didn’t get to see was the paint shop. Naturally, this is an extremely delicate area and the fewer disturbances in that part of the factory the better. GM Next has put...

    The current Trollhattan Saab shop is going to change in a week or so. The "Premium" shop that I'm currently using allows sales of multiple graphics on the same type of shirt, however the Premium shop also costs some money to run, so I'll be reverting back to a regular shop in just over a...
