Revive Your Ride differs from most of the other auto restoration books on the market in two important ways: (1) it covers general body and paint repair techniques but skips the mechanics (about 70% of restoration is body and paint and only 30% mechanical); and (2) it describes general techniques that can be applied to any vehicle, whereas most books cover only a specific make and model.

The value and collectability of muscle cars has never been higher. Models that sold for $30,000 at auction 10 years ago are now going for quadruple that in many cases. The charts showing auction results, sale prices, and car value have a continuous upward trajectory. As such, some rare models of muscle cars are now valued in the realm of historically high-valued classic, sports, and show cars. Who would have dreamed that a Hemi 'Cuda convertible would be selling for Duesenberg or Ferrari money these days? Of course, when values of muscle cars increase to such an extent, the care and detail spent on restoration becomes vitally important, putting them into the exotic and show car realm. Naturally, the most visible aspect of a full-blown restoration is the paintwork. Veteran author Tony Thacker teams up with LA-based award-winning painter extraordinaire Mick Jenkins to bring you this complete guide to show-quality painting. Included is all the information on how to create a show-quality finish, including chapters on making a plan, the tools needed for the job, complete disassembly information, repair versus replacement decisions, metal prep, the latest and best paint products, application, custom finishes, and more.

This book chronicles the reconstruction of a 1967 Mustang Coupe. The Coupe started as a plain, low value coupe. Time, gravity, weather, and use eventually caught up with the Coupe and it needed a serious make-over. The Coupe was converted from its existing 289 cubic inch, carbureted motor to a 5.0 fuel injected engine. At the same time, it was converted from an automatic to manual transmission (T-5) with overdrive. The reconstruction took 7 years (working on a part-time basis). Information is provided for reference only.

In Face Paint, Lisa Eldridge reveals the entire history of the art form, from Egyptian and Classical times up through the Victorian age and golden era of Hollywood, and also surveys the cutting-edge makeup science of today and tomorrow.

Unlike many books on painting that usually talk about art or painters, James Elkins’ compelling and original work focuses on alchemy, for like the alchemist, the painter seeks to transform and be transformed by the medium. In What Painting Is, James Elkins communicates the experience of painting beyond the traditional vocabulary of art history. Alchemy provides a magical language to explore what it is a painter really does in her or his studio - the smells, the mess, the struggle to control the uncontrollable, the special knowledge only painters hold of how colours will mix, and how they will look. Written from the perspective of a painter-turned-art historian, What Painting Is is like nothing you have ever read about art.
