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.

I imagine this text becoming a classic on the subject. The author wrote plainly. He introduced bumping, filing, filling, grinding, patching, sanding, sectioning, welding, and more. Newer and older repair approaches are mentioned, if only in passing. The author also discussed advantages and drawbacks of an impressive variety of tools normally used in bodywork.

After reading this book, I feel confident enough to tackle rust remediation on my aging Chevy truck. I think this book communicated the principles well enough that I'll be able to get out of any trouble I might stumble into. And I'll surely avoid a lot of trouble altogether. Without this book, I shudder to think of the damage I would have caused had I gone straight to an auto parts store and tried to git-r-done.

The author seems to possess a patience and reverence for the work, and what it takes to do bodywork competently. This is not a 12-step plan for slathering filler and spray paint on your ride.

With regard to criticism, I can think of three things that prospective readers might care to know. First, this book does not specifically discuss the latest generation of fancy electric sanders that are now probably finding their way into automotive use. For example, I happen to own a Festool RO 150 FEQ Rotex sander, which I reckon to be suitable for some automotive applications, but this book only addresses pure-rotary sanders of a traditional design. Second, this book does not discuss the application of paints and finishes much, if at all. Presumably, painting is beyond the scope of this book, and deserves treatment all its own. Thirdly, despite talking about welding as it applies to auto bodywork, persons who have never used a welder will need separate instruction.

Incidentally, bumping means using a hammer or similar tool to gently change the shape of sheet metal. I recall being confused about what bumping meant as I read the first pages of the book.

An old book on old methods. This is not how things are done the days- this book was written before epoxy primers were in widespread use, so the whole process in the book is now dated and inapplicable. That said, it's got a nice section on leading, if you want to try some of that.

Great book for beginning auto restorers like me. Tons of info on the many facets of each stage of bodywork.

If your fixing up an old car you want this book. Best I have found, lots of pictures and helpful info.

Has several good tips, I've done a fair amount of bodywork repair over the years due to salt repair, book helps remind me of things my dad taught years ago. The pictures are good for the beginner.

I bought this for my son who is really beginning to enjoy working and learning about cars. He really likes it. He commented how easy it was to understand and how good all the pictures were showing all the steps. I sat down and read the first chapter and feel like I could follow the instructions to remove a small dent. Well done. BRAVO!

This book shows how to learn how to do proper body work. It is very well written. I recommended this book to everyone wanting to learn auto body work.
Good over view of auto body work. Lacks depth
