Revised and updated with the latest composite materials technology.
For many years, race cars of all types have been constructed with lightweight materials other than aluminum or steel.
The application of this space-age technology is also becoming more widely used on streetcars as stronger materials are developed, costs become lower, and techniques are simplified.
This book is a comprehensive technical handbook on the most current technology behind fiberglass (Fibreglass) and other composite materials. This revised and updated edition of one of the most popular reference books on this subject will help you construct and repair your own lightweight body panels and components.
'Fiberglass And Other Composite Materials' is required reading for racers, automotive enthusiasts, engineering students, marine and aircraft enthusiasts and body-shop technicians.
