There comes a time when just about every car on the road will need some form of rust or body repair. Quite often, if the
car is a daily driver for running errands, repairs are never made, and the car eventually ends up in junkyard heaven.
For our beloved collector cars, hot rods, and muscle cars, dents, dings, and rust are not an option, and neither is the
scrap heap. And for just about any restoration project, the bodywork is by far the most expensive part of the process.
In Automotive Bodywork and Rust Repair, veteran Matt Joseph shows you the ins and outs of tackling both simple and
difficult rust and metalwork projects. This book teaches you how to select the proper tools for the job, common-sense
approaches to the task ahead of you, preparing and cleaning sheet metal, section fabrications and repair patches,
welding options such as gas and electric, forming, fitting and smoothing, cutting metal, final metal finishing,
including filling and sanding, the secrets of lead filling, making panels fit properly, and more. It also includes a
comprehensive resource guide.
Whether you decide you want to tackle a full restoration project, or just want to save money by doing minor repairs
yourself, Automotive Bodywork and Rust Repair is the book to get you through it.
