Classic Car Bodywork Manual, like any true classic book, has been 'rebuilt' - and it's now better than ever.

Lindsay Porter first wrote a workshop manual on car bodywork repairs for Haynes back in the '80s. Since that time, many techniques have changed, though even more remain the same.

And now, Lindsay has republished the book, updated and revised where necessary as Classic Car Bodywork Manual: The complete, illustrated step-by-step guide.

This 306-page book is bigger and better than before, now with 1.450 b/w illustrations and printed on better quality paper. It covers every aspect of classic car bodywork repair, and it's got every job you could need. 

This is a tremendous compendium of experience from Lindsay. Forty years of photos and facts from the '80s to the present day. Traditional skills to latest techniques.
