Panel Beating Doctor Bengt Blad Passes on his Know-How in a Unique Book

Bengt Blad was a young medical student in Uppsala, Sweden, when he "invested" his savings in an MGB, only to discover that his dream car was not in the condition he wanted it to be.

Without the money to have someone else do the body work needed, he used his talents and skills to learn how to repair his MGB himself, invested in and made the necessary tools.

This became the start of a new career, and instead of a medical degree, Bengt quickly earned his reputation as "the panel beating doctor".

For more than forty years, he has not only accumulated great skills and all the tools a well equipped workshop should have, but he has also built a collection of virtually all the literature available in Swedish and English, which describes different aspects of the panel beater's everyday work.

As he never found a comprehensive book on this subject, Bengt decided to write his own "thesis", which contains all his collected experience of more than 40 years in the panel beating profession - described with the same detail as you would expect from a surgeon who was giving an account of a day's work in the operating theatre!
