Overview

There are varying levels of automotive skill sets among the automotive enthusiast community. Some people can perform minor maintenance, some can perform major engine overhauls, and some can perform minor paint and detailing work. But to truly round out your skills in mechanical and body or chassis repair and restoration, sooner or later you will run into a project that requires welding. Once you have mastered welding, there is very little left that you can't do. Automotive Welding: A Practical Guide is just the book to get you there. Other welding books vary quite a bit on focus and detail. Automotive Welding: A Practical Guide fills the gaps, making it a practical book packed with useful information on the types of projects that a self-trained welder can complete and that a typical automotive enthusiast would want to undertake. Covers the kinds of welding and metalworking available or commonly used, the tools required to perform welding tasks, the different types of welders available, basic welding techniques, grinding and cutting, various forms of sheetmetal work, frame repair and reinforcement, filling body holes and rust repair, tube-steel projects, and more. With restoration and repair work costing a small fortune these days for frame, floor pan, and structural body repair, Automotive Welding: A Practical Guide can save you hundreds, it not thousands, of dollars on your repair or restoration project. If you have a pending restoration project, are considering tackling or acquiring a new project, want to restore a muscle car, build a hot rod or a rat rod on a budget, or simply want to improve your automotive skills, Automotive Welding: A Practical Guide will pay for itself manytimes over. No shop library would be complete without it!
