Reviews - What do customers think about Revive Your Ride: Secrets from a Body And Paint Restoration Pro?

Where's the beef?  Apr 27, 2008
This book was not very good. First of all the there are lot of filler pages. Each chapter has two title pages and a page for notes. There is 5-6 chapters. The first chapter is just about how to keep your shop clean.

The book goes from the painfully obvious -don't smoke cigarettes while painting- to vague and incomplete. There is an entire chapter on leading but only a short paragraph about actually melting the lead. Also this guy LOVES bondo.

Overall this book felt like a brief overview of paint and body work written to paint and body professionals. Or a few decent magazine articles spread thin to create a book. It does have lot's of nice color pictures

very helpful  Jan 12, 2008
This book is full of helpful hints on restoring an automobile. My husband watches videos and reads everything he can get his hands on about restoration, as well as researching the internet. You would think there would be nothing left to learn - not true! He really likes this book a lot and is glad he added it to his collection.
good but not detailed  Oct 30, 2007
This book is well written and photographs are nice. The author gives you a lot of basics, but doesn't go into detail on some of the areas of auto body work he covers. In his defense he does mention that, but I would have liked to see more info and examples on metal work. For a beginner, this book gives you just enough info to be dangerous with the tools. I feel like I need another book to supplement this one.
Finally a great body shop how to book!  Aug 26, 2007
Larry Lyles writes a really concise,clear book of how to revive and old tired car body. I have a freind that followed his steps exactly, and the car keeps winning shows. While it doesn't teach how to weld or any of that, a book can't possibly do that well, his book does get through the refinishing steps to achieve a great end point. Well worth the less than $20 price!!!
