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
using advanced materials and complete complex projects. TIG, MIG, oxy-acetylene,
and stick welding techniques are illustrated for a wide range of automotive applications.
Uttrachi details how to make a butt joint, single pass butt, double pass butt, joggle joint, lap joint welds, and numerous other varieties of joint welds. Using the techniques
revealed in this book, you can fabricate body panels, frames, and any number of
structural and functional automotive components, and perform structural repair.
Welding projects found in this book include welding the tubes of roll cage for strength
and safety, welding subframe connectors for improved chassis rigidity, repairing an
aluminum frame, creating a seat support on a rod, welding in a floor pan on a Triumph
TR3, and many others. With this book, beginner to intermediate skill-level welders will be able to improve and complete more advanced projects. Take your welding skills to the
next level with this new Pro Series title.
