About the author

Martin Thaddeus was born in Crawley, England, in 1959, one of nine children. After leaving Art College, Martin worked as a graphic artist but surgery to his right wrist led to retraining as a panel beater. After 10 years in crash repair and salvage, Martin chose to specialise in classic restoration which appealed to his creative nature. Customers have always been welcome in Martin's workshop and many have got their hands dirty under his watchful eye. Married for 23 years, Martin recently lost a kidney, his wife Elaine recently gained one! They have three grown up children.
