The author

Martin Thaddeus was born in Crawley, England, in 1959, one of nine children. On leaving art college, Martin worked as a graphic artist to a local paper, but surgery to his right wrist prompted a change of direction, and he retrained in panel-beating. After 10 years in crash repair and salvage, Martin chose to specialize in classic restoration, which appealed more to his creative nature. Martin has written several restoration books covering painting, restoring bodywork, and electrics of classic cars. Married for for more than 20 years and with three grown children, Martin recently lost a kidney, while his wife Elaine gained one!
