A key component, often overlooked, in automotive restoration is metal preparation. In essence, all the best bodywork, primer, and fancy paint won’t do you any good if the metal surface it adheres to is not expertly prepared. How many times at a classic car show have you seen imperfections in the paint, bubbles coming from underneath, and body filler separating from the metal? In almost every instance this is the result of poor metal preparation during the initial stages of the restoration process. In Media Blasting & Metal Preparation: A Complete Guide, restoration expert and veteran author Matt Joseph gives you all the tools you need to expertly prepare your car, motorcycle, or anything made of metal for the next stages of restoration. Covered are basic metal considerations such as type and size of metal; intended purpose of cleaning the metal; approaches to cleaning metal through chemical, mechanical abrasive, and media abrasive systems; mastering the processes for consistent results; small- and large-scale projects; and post-cleaning prep procedures. In short, anyone who takes shortcuts in the metal preparation area of restoration is virtually guaranteed disappointment down the road. With this handy new guide, Joseph provides all you need to know for a successful and long-lasting restoration.

Most metals, including steel, cast iron, and aluminum can be powder coated. With powder coating, these parts look brilliant and don't rust, corrode, or deteriorate. Powder coating is an attractive, tough, and resilient finish that is used to protect and preserve metals. Experienced powder-coating specialist and seasoned author Jeff Zurschmeide explains the process, principles, and options, so you can powder coat all your favorite parts and components. More durable than paint, many car owners choose to powder coat frame, suspension, and other parts to withstand extreme conditions and the elements. Zurschmeide profiles all the equipment, supplies, and popular kits required for powder coating parts. He explains how to set up and ventilate your workshop for powder coating. He then shows you how to properly clean the part (which includes chemical strippers, wire brushes, media blasting, and sanding media) spray with a media gun, and then cure with heat. He compares and contrasts several popular kits and explains how they function and perform. A wide range of powders and powder-coating chemicals are available, and he explains the attributes of each, and what to expect for results. Powder coating at home is safe, affordable, and easy to do with the right information. Moreover, powder coating has a number of applications, including automotive, motorsports, household, and more. While powder coating has had limited coverage in several other books, this book is dedicated to the process and this is the authoritative guide that covers equipment, products, and the process from beginning to end.
