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

when i painted my hood, i went to borders and read the books there lol

i also spend a good 45 minutes talking to the guy at the paint place. he gave me lots of good info and stuff to use.

hope that helps

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?" :jest:

What Color Are You Going To Paint The Book? And How Big Is The Book? Flames Maybe?

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! :chug:
