what we wanted
Very informative. Well done. Many great photos. Written so you can understand what they are doing.
I purchased this book for my husband who is a gearhead from way back. He really liked it and added it to his reference library. You really can't go wrong with this book.
nice step by step story on a restauration. easy to read, with enough info and tips to keep it useful
Beating panels and using references to my best advantage here.Hoping it looks and drives a good as the original, but a new toy to play with all winter is good too.
