Description

We are very proud to introduce the third DVD set in the successful StreetRod 101 series featuring Bob Hamilton: Fiberglass Bodywork & Paint, Plus Chassis Prep with Bonus Metal Pickup Bed Fabrication.

StreetRod 101 Fiberglass Bodywork and Paint

The newest 4-hour, 2-DVD set in the StreetRod 101 instructional DVD series

This new 4-hour instructional DVD shows you how to eliminate the imperfections found in most fiberglass bodies. As everyone knows, it’s preparation that’s the key element in a great paint finish and that’s what Bob shows you how to do in this informative DVD.

This isn’t a video about how to set up a spray gun, run a compressor or mix paint. It’s about all the mission critical elements you want to take care of before it gets to that point. Plus, if you follow what Bob shows you how to do in this 2-DVD set you’ll be able to save a fortune when it comes time to lay down your paint finish.

As the name indicates, this new DVD also covers a wide range of important chassis prep things you’ll want to do from dressing welds to brake line pressure testing. And to top it all off, Bob has included an in-depth bonus feature that shows you how to fabricate a sheet metal pickup bed that not only looks terrific but is incredibly functional and designed for rugged use for many years to come.
