help
« on: June 02, 2005, 02:01:04 PM »
Hey all! My family has a 66 mustang coupe sitting on blocks in the garage, where it's been for just about a decade. Its engine was practically new before we sat it out, it just needs a lot of body and interior work.  I want to learn how to work on it and do some of the repairs this summer, or at least start to.  Could anyone suggest where I could start looking for help? I honestly have no clue what I'm doing, and pretty much fit my username when it comes to general knowledge about cars. I'm very anxious to learn though! I have some friends in the garage business, but I want to do this on my own as much as possible. So any websites or books or anything you guys could suggest would be really great! Thank you!

Go to the library and see if they have any books.  Your local auto paint store may have some books or tapes on it.

I seen a add for books and stuff on body work I will find it and post it here.

It's not free and I never tested them so no garantee about their content

Good luck and if you decide to start the restoration of your car we'll all be happy to hear about it.

i would say some of the mags like hot rod, car craft, or popular hotrodding.... but sometimes they are a little more technical than a beginer level-- i think that car craft is the most "do it yourself" friendlly--

Another way is to take some automotive classes from your local community or vocational college.  Classes provide you with an instrcutor that knows his stuff and best of all you get to use the tools from the shop class, saving you some time and money from not having to buy all the tools yourself and having the right tools when you need them. :-)
