"Of all the skills required for old car projects, manipulating metal is the one most closely regarded as a black art, one not easily conveyed in print. It’s refreshing then to find that Professional Sheet Metal Fabrication author Ed Barr appears to possess that rare combination of highly defined skills along with the acumen to present them in a manner that absolute beginners can understand and use. At just past 300 pages, a lot of ground is covered, and this in-depth manual could well become your go-to resource." - Hemmings Motor News
Ferrari started making their first racing cars by hammering sheet metal for the chassis cold on tree trunks in an open field, and hand-forming the body, so any sheet metal fabricator is following a successful example!

He includes clear directions for using power and pneumatic hammers, the English wheel, Eckold machines, Pullmax machines and many more. Among the specific skills included are hand forming techniques, buck building, punching louvers, edge finishing, and more - forming door seams, making fenders, hoods, and other body parts. All projects are shown from start to finish, and there is advice on how to put finishes on metal, like engine turning, metal chasing, laser processing.
