Review:

This book is well written, easily understandable and backed by over 250 clear photographs and illustrations, nearly all in full color. Even the information on welding, metal forming and hammer techniques is highly detailed and well explained, something most other how to books don't do even half as well as this. --Hemmings Sport & Exotic Cars

From panel removal to patching, from floors and doors to sills and chassis, it's all included in both words and full colour photos. There are also chapters on metal forming, panel beating and magical things you can create with a flat piece of steel, a hammer and dolly and a little patience. While Triumph vehicles feature throughout, there is also an MGB facelift that might be of interest. This author has written for those who like to get their hands dirty. --Australian Classic Car

I have to say that this book is a great read, the author's enthusiasm for classic cars comes through in the writing yet all the way through it remains easy to understand; an enthusiastic reader can easily digest it from cover to cover. Many of the techniques for metalforming shown will come in handy for those doing running repairs at MOT time, as well as covering proper restoration. It also has useful advice on dealing with rust and making the basic preparations for painting. 5/5 --www.front-runners.net

About the Author:

Martin Thaddeus was born in Crawley in 1959, one of nine children. upon leaving art college, Martin worked as a graphic artist to a local paper, but surgery to his tight wrist prompted a change of direction, and he retrained in panel-beating. After 10 years in crash repair and salvage, Martin chose to specialise in classic restoration, which appealed more to his creative nature. Customers have always been welcome in Martin's workshop, and many have gotten their hands dirty under his watchful eye. Married for 23 years and with 3 grown up children, Martin recently lost a kidney, while his wife Elaine gained one!
