Book, How To Fabricate Automotive Fiberglass & Carbon Fiber Parts Part # 88-1800-2
Author: Dan Burrill and Jeffrey Zurschmeide Softbound 8.5 x 11 176 Pages 409 Color Photos ISBN: 9781934709986 Fiberglass and composite parts are commonly used in many collector cars, hot rods, Corvettes, and even latemodel vehicles. Body panels, interior components, and enige parts are fabricated from fiberglass and composite materials (plastic molded or carbon fiber). While other fiberglass and composite material books have been published, few are focused on fabricating and repairing automotive parts, and this book concentrates on completing common and advanced projects at home in the garage. The reader is shown how to use glass strand mat, woven fiberglass cloth, carbon fiber cloth, and hybrid fabrics for particular applications. The strength of these mats and ideal uses are covered in detail. Also shown is how to correctly mix the typical resins (Polyester, epoxy), hardeners, and gels. Core materials such as wood, foam and honeycomb Nomex, are often used to add strength to various parts. All the relevant tools, including mixing containers, holding containers, saws, scissors, files, and shaping tools are discussed. Constructing wood patterns to exacting standards from wood, Formica, aluminum, and other materials is essential and covered in detail. Whether repairing existing components, fabricating new ones, building a race car, or restoring a classic, this is the one book to guide the reader through each critcial stage. Learn More

Book, How To Hook and Launch: Traction Mods for Street and Strip Part # 88-1805-2
Author: Dick Miller Softbound 8.5 x 11 128 Pages 230 Color Photos ISBN: 9781934709351 While building big horsepower has becomre easier, putting that power to the pavement is still quite a challenge. Getting great "bite" involves a lot more than sticky tires and a smoky burnout. The suspension system is being put to work in a way it was never designed to operate. A better understanding of exactly what is happening to the suspension when the car launches fron a standing start will assist you in maximizing your car's effectivness on the street or at the track. In How to Hook and Launch: Traction Mods for the Street and Strip, author Dick Miller explains the physics behind what gets a car moving from a standing start, and how to best harness the various powers at work. Getting the rear tires to really bite and gain maximum traction is divided into several small steps, and Miller walks you through each phase of the launch. Today's enthusiasts face a wdie range of potential traction improvments, from softer tires and basic bolt-ons to complete or partial chassis replacements. Most opt for something in between, where some well-engineered componets are chosen to replace the factory equipment and offer a greater capability and range of adjustment. It is this range of upgrades where Miller spends most of his time, explaining what the parts and pieces do, and how to use them to their highest potential. Learn More

Book, How To Port & Flow Test Cylinder Heads Part # 88-1802-2
Author: David Vizard Softbound 8.5 x 11 160 Pages 304 Color Photos ISBN: 9781934709641 Porting heads is an art and science. It takes a craftsman's touch to shape the surfaces of the head for the optimal flow characteristics and the best performance. Porting demands the right tools, skills, and application of knowledge. Few other engine builders have the same level of knowledge and skill porting engine heads as David Vizard. All the aspects of porting stock as well as aftermarket heads in aluminum and cast-iron constructions are covered. Vizard goes into great depth and detail on porting aftermarket heads. Starting with the basic techniques up to more advanced. In addition, you are also shown how to build a high quality flow bench at home so you can test your work and obtain professional results. Vizard shows how to optimize flow paths through the heads, past the valves, and into the combustion chamber. The book covers blending the bowls, a basic portiing procedure, and also covers pocket porting, porting the intake runners, and many advanced procedures. These advance procedures include unshrouding valves, porting a shortside turn of the port down toward the valve seat, and developing the ideal port area and angle. All of these changes combine to produce optimal flow velocity through the engine for maximum power. Learn More
