help with 7781 needed!

Dear fellow LEGO enthusiasts,

I was fortunate enough to find set 7781, Two-Face's Escape, in a larger collection. However, the instructions are missing, and all the instructions I can find, here and on LEGO.com, for instance, are too dark for me to tell the black parts apart. Do any of you know a place where I could find better online instructions? Also, Two-Face's hair is missing, so if you have a spare that you would part with, hopefully in a trade for something you need, please let me know.
Thank you

Henrik

    All the downloadable instructions from 2006 sets have that problem, which his quite annoying. the only thing I can think of at the moment is to try adjusting the contrast on your monitor or phone. I'm not sure if it will help, but its worth a shot.

    About the hair. I doubt anyone here has a spare hair piece that they are willing to part with, and if they do, its probably in their Bricklink store too.

    I have this problem sometimes with the printed version of instructions! Had a quick look online and they all seem really dark. I can only suggest what @rancorbait said and alter the contrast/brightness of the image.

    Buying the instructions (I had to on a couple of sets like that) is the only other option

    What about checking on Peeron? I know it's an old site which is no longer maintained, but it has instruction scans in a different format (pictures of each page, rather than an entire PDF). It's worth a try.

    [Edit]:Just checked and it looks like they don't have it. Oh well.

    We find the use of either a magnify function (as my new computer has) or a magnifying glass helps define the black against black issue.

    I have tried adjusting those files in Photoshop in the past to no real gain. Like you I found the Batmobile to that set in a bulk used lot and figuring out what the missing bits were was a real pain.

    Thank you for your help. I still can't tell them apart. I thought I was clever by going through the inventory list in the back of the instructions, but they are as black as the rest. Maybe I'll just give up the start on something else.

    I had this same problem with the Harry Potter Knight Bus instructions. The one online was too dark, I couldn't see what I had to do. I tried Peeron, I use this site for everything even my parts listing, it's the best, but the instructions were better on the screen than printed out.

    I ended up buying the instruction booklet from France and it is so much better. If I was you I would search for the actual manual.

    @starwarsdenmark‌ do you still need instructions? i completely forgot about this as i'm clearing my flat to buy a house - no LEGO will be harmed in the move...

    You could check the parts list on Bricklink.

    @ obi_g - yes! If you would do that it would be such a help! Thank you!
