Issue Cover

Car Mechanics  |  August 2017  

With the increased use of plastic protective mouldings, galvanising and improved coatings on modern vehicles, corrosion is nowhere near as common
as it was in past decades. However, rust can still bite hard into bodywork, as CM’s recent Ford Ka project demonstrated so adeptly. Welding is often the only answer to corroded, or bent body panels. So while modern vehicles might not
require metalwork repairs as frequently as classic cars, Rob Marshall says that
welding is still a pertinent DIY skill.

Car Mechanics was first launched in April 1958 for the DIY motoring enthusiast and has established itself over the subsequent decades as the go-to title for motor repair. It’s slogan: ‘Saving you money since 1958’ is testament to its status as an invaluable motoring resource and it’s since evolved to become a handbook for the independent motor trade.

Over fifty years after its launch and now published by publishing powerhouse Bauer Media, Car Mechanics is the UK authority on maintaining and repairing popular cars. Each issue is revved up with jobs from simple to complex, including servicing and restoration and repairs. It offers the latest news and products to make your job easier, whether you’re fixing up an old banger or repairing your timing belt. 

Packed with unmissable monthly content including ongoing projects, tips and tricks directly from the workshop, mechanical mishaps, and part- and car-buying guides, this veritable mechanics’ guidebook will help you make an informed decision when starting a new project, with the experts behind the content covering everything you need to know before purchasing. 

Whether you’re looking for comprehensive product tests to help you get the best tools for your money or looking for help demystifying common car issues, there’s so much crammed into each monthly issue to keep you up to date all year long. If you’re an enthusiastic car mechanic or enjoy knowing how to do-it-yourself it’s worth investing in a Car Mechanics digital magazine subscription today - it’s the one thing in your garage guaranteed to save you money.

A Car Mechanics digital magazine subscription is a must-read for professional and amateur mechanics, who'll enjoy:

  • The UK’s only magazine with essential advice on maintaining and repairing all popular makes and models of car
  • Workshop tips on common car faults
  • How to source spare parts for less
  • The latest news in the mechanic industry
  • Test-drives and product reviews
