If you wish to successfully restore your vehicle with a perfect outer layer, but sure to add CarTech’s Media Blasting & Metal Preparation: A Complete Guide (SA313) to your collection of books today! Restoration expert Matt Joseph will guide you through all aspects of preparing your metal surfaces for a smooth and successful restoration.
