E-type Jaguar DIY Restoration & Maintenance

£ 29.99 GBP

A Complete DIY restoration of an E-type JaguarRead about the restoration of an E-type

An expert could not have written this book.  Experts start with knowledge and experience, and so inevitably make assumptions and gloss over important details.  Chris Rooke had played with classic cars before but had never fully restored one, and knew nothing about them.  He learnt by trial and error, making mistakes and correcting them.  With admirable courage, he does not hide his mistakes but details them for the benefit of others.  This unique approach has created a brilliantly useful and very readable E-type restoration book that really will help you if you want to work on yours or know more about the workings of one.
