How to Plate, Polish and Chrome (Motorbooks Workshop)
How to Plate, Polish and Chrome (Motorbooks Workshop)
by Dennis Parks
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars More about paint than polish., 19 Nov. 2009
I have to say that even having read some of the reviews of this book I was still surprised how little of the book is actually about polishing, chroming and plating - considering the title. Quite a lot of the book is devoted to the subject of painting which is not what I wanted or expected really. If you are after a book which will give you some basic info on polishing, some hints about chrome and the like and a how-to on painting then it covers a lot of ground. However if you already know how to paint, or maybe don't want to know that then you'll find most of the book a waste of space.

How to Build and Modify Rochester Quadrajet Carburetors (S-a Design)
by Cliff Ruggles
Edition: Paperback
Price: £22.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the tin, 19 Nov. 2009
If you are looking for a book about selecting and rebuilding a Qjet to get the best performance (and economy, drivability) out of it, then this is the book for you. Really explains well how the qjet works and why conventional techniques you learned from working on Holleys doesn't work on them. Nice refference section as well.
