Product description

Synopsis

The restoration of a classic car can, at first, seem like a daunting task. Based on the author's 50 years' experience of restoring classic cars, this book explains how to plan a restoration project and carry out the tasks required, safely and efficiently to a good standard. Advice is given on buying a suitable vehicle for a restoration project, and the techniques involved in the renovation of chassis, bodywork, engine, drive train, running gear and electrics are described using easy-to-understand text and illustrations. Here is a useful guide for anyone contemplating the restoration of a classic car.

The book covers: purchasing a car for a restoration project - how to avoid the pitfalls, and the preparation needed before starting restoration; how to assess what work can be carried out on a DIY basis and what to put out to specialists; choosing and using tools and equipment according to the capabilities of the restorer and the extent of the restoration work being undertaken; restoration techniques, including metal cutting and joining (riveting, soldering, brazing and welding), drilling, metal polishing and choosing and using fasteners; and restoration of chassis, monocoque, detachable bodies, interior, engine/drive train, fuel system, steering, suspension, brakes, roadwheels, tyres and electrics. Appendices list useful clubs, suppliers, publications and specialist services.
