Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For many restorers, hot-rodders, and custom-car builders, the opportunity to tailor their vehicles to their own vision is almost as exciting as driving the car itself. From center consoles to garnish moldings, door panels to deck lids, there are limitless opportunities to create the car interior of your dreams—all you need are the tools and know-how. Luckily, Motorbooks Workshop is here to help you out.
 
Veteran Motorbooks author and lifelong gearhead Dennis Parks is back to walk you through many of the most common—and popular—interior and upholstery techniques. How to Restore and Customize Automotive Interiors is a one-stop resource when your factory-stock bucket seats just won’t cut it anymore or when your restored classic needs a shiny new headliner. Whether your goal is to wow the judges at a national car show or simply to improve the look and feel inside your favorite ride, you’ll find something here to help you create an interior that really stands out.
 
Each project features a chart of basic tools and materials, estimated time commitment, and more. Meticulous step-by-step photography and accompanying instruction help you every step of the way, offering tips, tricks, and options for each customization. You’ll never look at your vehicle the same way again!

Synopsis:

A major part of any auto restoration is bringing the interior back to life, and How to Restore and Customize Automotive Interiors provides you with the tools and knowledge you need to tackle any job on any type of car, from prewar classics to full-on customs to modern vehicles.

With tips and advice for selecting the right tools and planning your job, as well as maintaining your restored interior, How to Restore and Customize Automotive Interiors is the only book you’ll need to get the job done.
