Automotive Fibreglass - Fabrication and Repair
Written by CKC Technical writer John Dickens, Automotive Fibreglass: Fabrication and Repair will take its reader step by step through making GRP components and repairing damaged ones.
The book begins with chapters on the materials and tools required and how to get your workshop ready. Then the bulk of the book is presented as a series of real projects which will show you how to make body panels in your garage at home. It will open with a simple project – making a glassfibre sheet – and gradually work up to more complex tasks. These include making replica panels, creating one-off items, working with split moulds as well as repairing gelcoat and undertaking structural repairs. In short, it will be packed with useful information and presented with John’s trademark clarity.
