I have been looking in the M&M bookstore for a good book on how to do bodywork on my 68. Diagrams with part names, some instruction etc. I need to replace 1/4's, fenders, trunk, hood, inner fenders, rockers.

Any suggestions?

Hey Gregg,

The best source that I have found is the internet and the magazines. Here are some links that I have that seem to be pretty good.

Quarter repairs:

Pretty intense resto, with tons of pics:


Pretty detailed structural resto by a pro...Most folks would have walked away from this one:

Core support and aprons:

The Ford assembly manuals help a bunch too. I think you can get these from the bookstore.

Hope this helps,

Order a full set of Jim Osborne manuals. Lots of detail and good information. National Parts Depot carries them.
