The quality of any car restoration is the sum of numerous small parts restorations. In this great download, Mark Simpson takes you through many common restoration topics and how to restore some common parts. He demonstrates how to adjust hood hinges, zinc phosphate coating and how to properly remove and recondition the springs. Simpson also takes you through the process of rebuilding ball and trunnion driveshaft joints, common to many early cars and trucks.
