    DescriptionThis book is the complete practical guide to repairing and renovating classic car bodywork for the amateur repairer. Illustrated throughout with step-by-step photo sequences, it describes how to undertake high-quality repairs at a fraction of the cost of that charged by an automotive bodyshop or restoration specialist - from removing a scratch to fitting a new body panel. The techniques shown demystify the 'black art' of bodywork repair, using commonly available tools and materials to achieve professional results. It is an essential guide for anyone looking to restore or maintain a classic car on a budget.
