How to Re­store: Clas­sic Car In­te­ri­ors £25.00

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

By Ste­in­furth & Zo­porowski. Com­piled from Old­timer Markt ar­ti­cles, trans­lated by Ju­lian Parish. A com­pen­dium of tips and in­struc­tion, this lat­est en­try to Ve­loce’s En­thu­si­ast’s Restora­tion Man­ual se­ries deals with the of­ten tricky world of car in­te­ri­ors. An­tic­i­pat­ing a few tips of cut­ting leather and shap­ing car­pet, this in­ex­pen­sive pa­per­back turns out to be a fast-paced and com­pre­hen­sive guide for all as­pects of car in­te­ri­ors, in­clud­ing 3D print­ing re­place­ment parts, rewiring 1980s ra­dios and restor­ing clas­sic steer­ing wheels, gauges and switchgear.

A lot is ex­plain­ing the process a spe­cial­ist sub-con­trac­tor would use, and that’s a great ap­proach, as th­ese are skills. Treat this as a guide to the ser­vices you need to find, rather than a how-to, but there’s enough in­spi­ra­tion that you’ll want to seek in-depth guides for the tech­niques that ap­peal to you.
