Editorial Reviews


"In 192 pages and some 450 color photos, the book takes the reader/hobbyist through the process of choosing a vehicle to rebuild, what they will need in the way of tools and working space, and all the rebuilding steps from dismantling the subject vehicle, cutting, shaping, finishing and assembling the new woodie body. Peck collected photos and building tips from visits to several U.S. shops, such as Ron Heiden's, Treehouse Woods, Wood'n Carr, Glenn Redding and Rick Mack, as well as those closer to him in the U.K., making this a truly international effort." â?? Woodie Times
