The term “amateur repair work” today implies that the work in question has not been carried out to a professional standard. However, in March 1936 the Light Car magazine published an informative ten page article bearing that title to assist car owners carry out their own repairs, saving money in the process. The article consists of handy hints, tips and ‘how to’ guides that are as useful today as they were when the article was first published. Did you know that an application of a vinegar solution on a rusted-on nut will help free it? Who needs WD40? The article can now be found in the Member’s Area Technical Bits section under ‘Everything Else’.
