Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Expert mechanic Bryant (How To Design and Install In-Car Entertainment Systems) tackles a popular topic in this logically organized guide. He includes helpful charts and detailed photos related to engine rebuilds, car systems, and bodywork but assumes access to a complete workshop, technical skills, and a supply of quality parts. The fabrication and painting sections do not offer sufficient instruction. Still, this is a nice addition to car renovation and modification collections.
