This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I was surprised at how interesting this book turned out to be. I was thinking of painting cars, but this is about restoring cars by working with the original paint and the car's current condition. The discussion of color and mixing colors is shown in step-by-step photos. Their work in a Volkswagen Beetle lets you see the techniques and methods as done in their garage. Highly recommended. ( )

This is another wonderful and useful Cartech publication. Kevinn Tetz has written a great and easy to follow workbook taking you step-by-step through various process to restore your vehicle while keeping the original aged condition it was found in. Who thought the car (a 1953 GMC Pickup) that I got running and used for day by day use would become more popular than some of my restored show cards. I wish I had this book when I worked on getting my vehicle street ready again. This will help me do some improvements thanks to this book, The author explains creating patina from existing paint, preserving patina, and painting patina on on all mediums of the vehicle. Each process is unique and requires its own set of skills, procedures, and tools. A handy workbench book for every shade tree mechanic. ( )
