Like any true classic, the book itself has been rebuilt - and its now better than ever!
Lindsay Porter first wrote a workshop manual on car bodywork repairs for Haynes back in the 80s. Since that time, many techniques have changed, though even more remain the same. And now, Lindsay has republished the book, updated and revised where necessary as:
Classic Car Bodywork Manual: The complete, illustrated step-by-step guide
This 306 page book is bigger and better than before, now with 1,450 B&W illustrations and printed on better quality paper. It covers every aspect of classic car bodywork repair and its got every job you could need, including:
- Mig and gas welding and brazing - latest techniques
- Plasma and gas cutting
- Stripping and preparing for paint
- Masking and spraying techniques, including advice on which paint to use.
- Panel beating
- Rust treatment and proofing
- Galvanising explained
- Windscreens, window winders and door locks
- Mixing and applying body fillers
- Lead-loading
- Repairing and rebuilding glassfibre bodywork
- Making simple badges and fitting decals
- Polishing and cleaning
...and much more besides.
This is a tremendous compendium of experience from Lindsay. Forty years of photos and facts from the 80s to the present day. Traditional skills to latest techniques. Panel beating and lead loading to plasma cutting and modern spray paints. All in Step-by-Step detail.
Lindsay Porter started writing how-to and easily understandable technical stuff way back in 1980 in Practical Classics magazine and now has more than 50 books and over 1,000 magazine articles to his credit, with more to come. "Theres plenty of life in the old dog yet!" he says.
This extensively revised and updated book was previously published, before additions and improvements, as Classic Car Bodywork Repair Manual by Haynes Publishing.
