This book covers the setting-up and use of a home car workshop. Whether you're working with a small or large space, it shows you how a workshop should be laid-out for safety and ease of use, the best parts and tool storage options, and the equipment you should buy.

It also covers how to use the tools and equipment, how to weld, how to use hand tools, and gives advice on the best tools to buy to work on the electronics of your car. The book is fully illustrated throughout, with step by step guides, and many useful hints and tips. If you are planning to set up your own home workshop, this book is for you.
