Fabrication/ Sheet metal working book

There is a lot of sheetmetal work going on in here, so I figured I would throw this out there.  I'm certainly not a sheetmetal expert, but I think I can do a fair job when needed.  This is one of the books I read when I was learning how to do some of it.  This is probably the best book I've read on the subject.  I still look back for ideas from time to time.  It's not exactly related to replacing pre-stamped car panels, but the ideas will give you something to think about and make your work more precise or easier to do.

I've got a copy if someone wants to check it out, but it's one of my few prized books, so I'm not big on loaning it out.

I might snag a copy for future reference.  Ive winged it on a couple small projects and have a couple bigger ones to do here soon that will require a little more skill.

I'm too ignorant on metallurgy; got any similar advice?

Not really.  I had a freshmen level college textbook that had some, but I'm sure I burned it.

I took a class (300 level) on metallurgy and heat treatment. I should still have that textbook. I learned a lot from that course and remember the textbook being really good as well. I can probably dig it up if you were seriously interested in learning more about it.
