Reference Material and Sites Relating to our 1958 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite

BOOKS AND PRINT

BOOKS I'VE USED
Books I have in my library that have helped with the project.

  1. Moss Motors Catalog - This is a "must have." Ironically this catalog is one of the best references around because of all the parts illustrations in the book. Click here for the catalog order page.
     
  2. Key To Metal Bumping - This book is short, easy to read, and answers tons of questions. How do you swing a body hammer? It's in there. Where on the dent do you start? It's in there. A great reference that is well worth the money. It can be purchased at Eastwood, but I'm guessing it may be available cheaper at your local bookstore.
