Description



About the Book



From chassis to body, this book offers workable, fool-proof advice for building the hot rod of your dreams.



Book Synopsis



You're building a hot rod. The first step is the chassis. If it's not right, the car won't handle well. If it's really not right, the car might destroy itself. There are choices to be made, from frame rails to suspension components, and some combinations will work better than others. Next is the body. This is what everyone sees first. It's what makes a hot rod a hot rod. This book is a sure-fire guide to the best approach. Veteran builder and writer Dennis Parks walks you through the whole process, from finding and using existing panels to choosing New Old Stock panels from the aftermarket. The Hot Rod Body and Chassis Builder's Guide offers fool-proof advice for building the hot rod of your dreams.
