Sydney, Australia, June 08, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Steve C. Brooks is not a professional mechanic or panel beater but he is passionate about car restoration. He asserts that it doesn’t have to be an expensive, full-scale mega-production, but can be done in a series of modest steps. He’s sharing what he’s discovered in years of experience so readers of his books can profit from secrets of low-cost car restoration.
Steve began (as do we all) as a total newby. “When I started out with car restoration and maintenance, I wasn’t employed to push trolley jacks under cars,” Steve admits. “I was pushing pens in an office.”
From a novice who didn’t know where to begin in maintaining, repairing or restoring cars, Steve learnt by helping masters of backyard car restoration. He’s been there. He’s brought cars back to the road from near junker status and he always did it with a shoestring budget. That’s where 'Low-Cost Car Restoration Vol. 2: Brilliant Bodies and Marvellous Mechanicals' comes in.
“Car restoration doesn’t have to be an overwhelming project,” says Steve Brooks. “It can be done in a series of small steps, even while the car is still on the road.”
“I want to show readers how to plan and perform a quality car restoration that they can be proud of, one that will boost the value of any vehicle, whether it’s a collector car or not.”
Steve was asked who would benefit from using his books. “Just about anyone who has access to the modest tools, equipment and facilities needed for a car restoration. It’s all about using the space you have, acquiring new skills and applying skills already known in new ways.”
Steve’s conversational writing style and straightforward advice appeals to readers who are daunted or discouraged by their car project. Cartoons and diagrams by illustrator Igor Spajic both explain and entertain with a wry sense of humour.
Steve Brooks is confident that people can save hundreds, perhaps thousands on professional costs by doing their own car restoration and improvement work.
The second of Steve’s books, "Low-Cost Car Restoration Vol. 2: Brilliant Bodies and Marvellous Mechanicals" has just been published on Amazon’s handy Kindle platform. To celebrate this milestone, Steve’s first book "Low-Cost Car Restoration Vol. 1: Impressive Interiors" will go free for 24 hours this Saturday June 8th in a Kindle Select promotion.
