Classic Car Bodywork is a guide of start-to-finish body restoration, it goes through techniques from how to replace panels with new items all the way up to fabricating your own sheetmetal from scratch. The author is a Triumph fan, and all the examples shown in the book are applied to British classic cars with occasional examples from other manufacturers thrown in where there are fundamental differences.
I have to say that this book is a great read, the author's enthusiasm for classic cars comes through in the writing yet all the way through it remains easy to understand; an enthusiastic reader can easily digest it from cover to cover. Many of the techniques for metalforming shown will come in handy for those doing running repairs at MoT time, as well as covering proper restoration. It also has useful advice on dealing with rust and making the basic preparations for painting.
In short I rate it at 5/5 – both useful and a good read.
