Books Reviews and Recommendations

 

A restoration manual for the Triumph Herald, Spitfire and its derivatives. Today the Herald, Spitfire, GT6 and Vitesse are among the most restorable classic cars available for DIY enthusiasts. The booming owners' club movement and the continuing availability of spare parts ensures that these cars will be popular for many years to come. I have this book (with the older cover so do not buy this if you have the old copy as it a cover update not a reprint) and found it extremely useful while rebuilding my spitfire.

 

The Haynes manual is a must for any classic car owner whether you are doing a complete rebuild or just a service. Packed with vital information to keep your classic on the road where it should be.

 

This is very good general book on bodywork techniques but has tends to concentrate on MG and Triumph for its examples. This book is well written and interesting to read as well as giving vital information and tips on restoration from someone who has done it all before many times.

 

Very similar to the restoration manual for the Triumph Herald, Spitfire and its derivatives but this time for the MG B. Very useful book for general maintenance as well as for full restorations.

 

The Haynes manual is a must for any classic car owner whether you are doing a complete rebuild or just a service. Packed with vital information to keep your classic on the road where it should be.

DVD Reviews and Recommendations

 

An entertaining DVD with some very good tips although not a complete guide to MGB restoration it does provide more than ample inspiration.

 

The whole is born collection which is more entertainment that technical but most enjoyable to watch. Would make a great gift for the classic car enthusiast.
