Welding is an essential skill for the avid car enthusiast, car builder, and fabricator. Engines, exhaust, intake, suspensions, frames, all can be welded for repair and fabrication purposes. While many introductory or entry level welding books are available on the market, this is the first book to comprehensively cover advanced techniques, complex joints, advanced processes, and working with a variety of materials, including aluminum, Chrome moly, stainless steel, carbon steel, titanium, and magnesium. American Welding Society Vice President Jerry Uttrachi is a master welder and he reveals all major welding processes and techniques, so you can repair and fabricate special metals and complete complex joints. TIG, MIG, oxy-acetylene, and stick welding techniques are illustrated for a wide range of automotive applications.
