In this revised and updated edition of Pro Paint and Body, author Jim Richardson offers the reader a chance to acquire the techniques, tips and tricks that professional painters and artists have developed over many years.

The techniques discussed and detailed in this how-to book, can make the difference between creating a car that looks good, versus one that looks fantastic.

This guide will also be beneficial to those who want to learn about the latest automotive paint technology, as things have changed dramatically in the last 20 years as a result of environmental laws as well as newer materials that are now available.

This book covers everything you need to know, from basic bodywork to repair a fender-bender to a show-car finish.

Find out what master craftsmen do in order to create a show-winning vehicle. Whether by welding, panel beating, or applying the paint, the second edition Pro Paint and Body how-to guide provides the answers you seek.

If you can follow instructions and are willing to practice the techniques explained in this book, then you can paint. And if you're also willing to add some elbow grease to sand and polish, you also can achieve results worthy of car shows. This book has all the info you'll need.
