Excerpt from Automobile Painting and Carriage and Wagon PaintingThe garage owner whose winter income depend largely on rentals and overhauling jobs will find the painting of cars generally repaired to be a profitable addition to his earnings. He has the room usually, and needs but to study the work to be able to handle it. Rebuilt cars which he may be holding for sale offer an excellent opportunity to increase his pro-fit. A few coats of paint and varnish have sold more cars than much talking ever did. Painting really increases the value 'of an automobile as well as to make it sell more easily.Before you have gone very far into this book, you will readily see that it does not present any wonderful new material by the use of which, you can perform such a miracle as producing a really fine and artistic finish on an automobile body with but one or two coats and without the use of time tried filling and surfacing methods. Frankly, it cannot -be done, as you will readily agree after having tried it. Any method which produces a finish of good appearance requires time and more labor than the brushing on of one or two coats of materials. Later 1n this work finishing meth ods will be given which require the minimum of labor, number of coats, time and expense and which will at the same time result in a good looking, serviceable finish.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
