Best books?

Howdy,

What are the best books for:

Painting a 901

Bodywork (getting the panels straight)

MIG welding with argon/co2

Thanks for the advice!

Buy a mig welder practice on scrap. Search the web for tutorials, read Freddie's tutorial on painting ask porsche 962 he's a good resource for information.

if your car is a real 901 then it's not a car you would want to touch if you have no experience .
you could take a priceless car that shouldn't be in privet hands as only a few did get away from porsche and ruin the value .

When I say 901, I mean that in general to describe 911/912. Just shorthand.

I've read Freddie's tutorials and threads on this and other boards for 15 years but I still haven't learned enough. For example: I plan on using Glasurit but don't really know which primer to use, don't know if I should clear coat it. There seems to be so many variables and in reading threads many points of knowledge are assumed.

I like to follow an organized set of steps with pitfalls pointed out along the way. I don't expect it to be perfect but I'd like to do a reasonably good job for a street car.

I figured following a book would be a good system but don't really know.

No such book exists. Are you taking it down to bare metal?? I'm doing a car right now with BASF products would be glad to share all the information I have gathered from painters and basf. It's not rocket science, but I understand you want it done right.

Yes, bare metal. I would love to hear your system. Thanks!
