After disassembling and gutting your car, it is easy to feel that you're in way over your head when it comes to the upholstery. This is why so many do-it-yourself restorers outsource the work, at considerable expense, to an experienced upholstery shop. Taking the time to acquire the skills for upholstery restoration may feel like a daunting task, but what if an experienced upholsterer presented every skill you needed to restore upholstery yourself? Starting with a list of necessary tools, author Fred Mattson guides you through all the required tasks, including seat restoration; door panel removal, patterning, assembly, and installation; headliner removal and installation; carpet cutting; and even convertible top restoration. The easy-to-follow step-by-step presentation allows for a thorough understanding of all the processes. Every photo in this book provides a hands-on approach that shows you how to repair and restore a car’s interior to concours, show-quality specifications. Other restoration books may show you beautifully restored interiors, but they don't show you how to produce them. This book helps you develop the skills needed with instruction from a professional upholsterer, saving you thousands of dollars over outsourcing the restoration. If you are interested in saving money, doing a complete restoration yourself, or simply want to know how it's done, this book is a handy addition to your automotive library.

Die Zeiten, dass bekiffte Fahrer bei Verkehrskontrollen unbehelligt blieben, weil nur auf Alkohol kontrolliert wurde, sind lange vorbei - mit Schnelltests, Urinproben und Blutentnahmen können Polizei und Verkehrsbehörden heute jede Art von Drogenkonsum nachweisen und die Sanktionen, die bei einem positiven Nachweis drohen, sind meist schwerwiegender als bei einer Trunkenheitsfahrt. Neben grundsätzlichen Informationen zur Rechtslage (in D/A/CH), im Zusammenhang mit Drogen und Verkehrssicherheit liefert das Buch aktuelle Beispiele zur Praxis von Behörden und Justiz, zu den geltenden Grenzwerten, der Auswirkung auf Konsumenten und bietet Infos und Tipps zum Verhalten im "Ernstfall". Vorwort von Mathias Bröckers.

This book will get those hopefuls off the sidelines by showing how a hot rod can be built for less than the cost of, say, a new Hyundai.

He provides a detailed, easy-to-follow guide for building a car of your own. The advice and instructions cover every aspect of an affordable hot rod build, from establishing the target vehicle and budget, to finding parts, building the car, and fine tuning the finished vehicle on the road. With Parks' money-saving tips and photo-supported how-to sequences, virtually anyone with minimal mechanical skills and the will to use them can be sure of building their hot rod right, and for the right price. The book also includes a full resource guide and recommendations for further reading.
