Independent Reviews

FOR THE PREVIOUS EDITION:

"You can't fail to pick up lots of tip if you're the average DIY mechanic. The book is recommended for any home mechanic undertaking restoration work, and at £19.99 could end up saving you a small fortune." – Mini Cooper Register

"This book is well written, easily understandable and backed by over 250 clear photographs and illustrations, nearly all in full color. Even the information on welding, metal forming and hammer techniques is highly detailed and well explained, something most other how – to books don't do even half as well as this." - Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car

"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 metal forming 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. 5/5." – www.front-runners.net

"From panel removal to patching, from floors and doors to sills and chassis, it's all included in both words and full colour photos. There are also chapters on metal forming, panel beating and magical things you can create with a flat piece of steel, a hammer and dolly and a little patience. While Triumph vehicles feature throughout, there is also an MGB facelift that might be of interest. This author has written for those who like to get their hands dirty." – Australian Classic Car

'It covers everything from the most basic repairs to complex panel shaping and is full of useful nuggets of info…'
