Book excerpt: Thousands of Cobra and Lotus Super 7 replica owners dream of one day turning their fiberglass tribute cars into genuine metal machines, like the originals, but don't know where to begin. Many more car guys would love to customize their hot rod or restore their classic without paying the stiff fees charged by custom panel shops. Now, for the first time, they have a guide that goes into great detail on how to build complete metal bodies, not just patch panels, for any car project without the need for expensive tools, years of training, or paying for professional help. Some of the world's greatest panel crafters share their tips, techniques, and experience to get the home builder up to speed quickly. This book goes well beyond introductory metal shaping and through step-by-step instructions, along with hundreds of photographs, shows how to form complex, perfectly formed panels in the home shop. Dreams of customizing become an affordable reality with this book by noted builder, designer, and craftsman William H. Longyard.
