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.

Metal Fabricator's Handbook Ron Fournier ; Paperback: 176 pages (August 1990) Publisher: HP Books

I used to panelbeat for a living in a busy commercial panel shop, but now its a hobby. This is a great book to get you started with shaping and forming metal and shows how it should be done. Wish I had bought it years ago. Thoroughly recommended. [a reviewer]

cover
 

Ultimate Sheet Metal Fabrication Paperback: 144 pages ; Dimensions (in inches): 0.38 x 10.94 x 8.44 Publisher: Wolfgang Productions;

This book seems to be a good introduction to metal shaping. Though, not being the most thorough, it gives a good starting point as to figuring how some shapes are made. Some of the techniques dont seem to be explained the greatest through a book. It is primarily geared towards building car bodies. However, with a bit of imagination the techniques can be applied any where one would use curvilinier three-demensional forms. Overall, I found this book useful.
