How to Paint Your Car Paperback: 159 pages ; Dimensions (in inches): 0.39 x 10.32 x 8.54 Publisher: Motorbooks International

Although, you should never rely on one source for all of your information. This book is very good in explaining the detail of the basics on painting any automobile. I kept this book near me as I painted my own car. I have yet to see a better book on the basics of painting an automobile. I recommend this book for any of you who are a beginner.

How to Cast Small Metal and Rubber Parts

Paperback: 168 pages ; Dimensions (in inches): 0.50 x 8.25 x 5.25 Publisher: McGraw-Hill Professional; 2nd edition (February 1986)

Excellent or non-commercial molding of rubberlike compounds. While this 1986 edition does not address possible new developments in this area (Loctite now sells material which appears to be the same as the Devcon product highlighted in the book), it is excellent on creating rubber parts for the home hobbyist and restorer. The metal casting section is primarily focused on sand casting of aluminum.

Automotive Upholstery Handbook: by Don Taylor; 228 pages ; Dimensions (in inches): 0.62 x 10.98 x 8.52 Publisher: Motorbooks International; ISBN: 1931128006; Revised edition (January 2002)

This book contains a lot of information about auto upholstery. I had never touched a machine before reading the book, and I have succesfully covered several seats. My only complaint would be that I would have liked more coverage of making door panels, center consoles, and other custom items, but that is only because that is my main interest. There is enough basic information on those subjects to get me going though. Overall a great book.
