There's a book written by Donald Farr, formerly with M&Fords and MMonthly, on the Boss 302. It may be available on Amazon.

Another book you might want to check out or look at that has some great information about the Boss 302, Boss 351 and Boss 429 that covers Specifications, Features, Construction and Equipment. Jim Osborn carriers the manual and the number is MP 25. It's 30 pages long.
We also have an MCA member in our local club that owns two Boss 302s and he has fully restored them. I will ask him about restoration guides and see what he has to say.

For mechanical detail, nothing is better than a reprint of the Ford factory shop manual for your year. The Ford assembly manual is an excellent companion. The Ford wiring diagram provides excellect electrical information. All of these are available from any of the Mustang vendors.

Farr's book is good but pretty general in nature. It has lots of nice pictures and helpful suggestions.
