It's normally difficult to make interior car trim panels that look right. That's especially the case when the panel needs to curve in two directions at once - to be compound curved. But in this short booklet, author Julian Edgar shows a completely new way of making these panels. It's quick, easy (no hours of sanding!) and gives excellent results. The approach uses a very special technique that produces sandwich layer foam panels that can easily be trimmed in carpet or cloth. The panels can be curved however you like, and provide good sound and heat insulation. The panels can be produced at home, require no special tools and use readily available materials. In this booklet more than 65 colour photos are used to show the step-by-step of making flat-faced panels, 3-layer foam curved panels and 5-layer foam curved panels. There's also pages on how to trim the panels in carpet, on the correct materials to use, and hints and tips. So start making interior trunk panels, door trims and kick panels for your car, truck or RV today.

From the resumption of automobile production at the close of World War II through the 1950s, the American auto industry would see the births and deaths of several manufacturers, great technological advances, and an era of dramatic styling as a prospering nation asserted its growing mobility. Cars of this period are among the most iconic vehicles ever built in the United States: the 1949 Ford, the remarkable Studebaker designs of 1950 and 1953, the 1955–1957 Chevrolets, the “Forward Look” Chrysler products, the ill-fated Edsel and many others. This comprehensive reference book details every model from each of the major manufacturers (including independents such as Kaiser-Frazer and Crosley but excluding very low-volume marques such as Tucker) from model years 1946 through 1959. Year by year, it provides an overview of the industry and market, followed by an individual report on each company: its main news for the year (introductions or cancellations of models, new engines and transmissions, advertising themes, sales trends etc.); its production figures and market status; and its powertrain offerings, paint colors and major options. The company’s models are then detailed individually with such information as body styles, prices, dimensions and weights, standard equipment and production figures. Nearly 1,000 photographs are included.

The automotive industry underwent great change in the 1960s and the early 1970s. The continuing trend toward market consolidation, the proliferation of sizes and nameplates, and the “need for speed” characterized this period, loosely labeled as the muscle car era. This is an exhaustive reference work to American made cars of model years 1960–1972. Organized by year (and summarizing the market annually), it provides a yearly update on each make’s status and production figures, then details all models offered for that year. Model listings include available body styles, base prices, engine and transmission choices, power ratings, standard equipment, major options and their prices, curb weight and dimensions (interior and exterior), paint color choices, changes from the previous year’s model, and sales figures. Also given are assembly plant locations and historical overviews of each model nameplate. The book is profusely illustrated with 1,018 photographs.
