CLASSIC CAR BODYWORK MANUAL
Like any true classic, the book itself has been 'rebuilt' - and it's 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 it's got every job you could need, including:

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. "There's plenty of life in the old dog yet " he says.
