Default Painting books?

Anybody know some really good books on the process of painting cars? Something detailed not just a section of book with a rough idea about it.

Thanks

These no substitute for having someone teach you. IMHO

Find a cool body shop that will let you loiter and watch and ask questions.

I agree but around here it ain't gonna happen. We don't even have that many decent body shops.

When I first read the title I thought "why would anyone want to paint a book?"

Yeah I ordered some books by him and a video. I actually have a front fender off my 2000 that is cracked so I will be practicing on that not the car. I'm pretty good at painting itself I just wanted to see the whole process to make sure I don't miss something.

I'll start painting my books after I get good at it. Some are classics!
