    My suggestion for "mechanicing" is to break it down into its basic functions . Learn how basic components are assembled into a complex "organism" if you will. Take a common automatic transmission for example , it has mechanical , hydraulic and electrical components that must co-exist . You will need to study mechanical , hydraulic and electrical principles to gain an understanding of how a mechanic must think in order to troubleshoot , disassemble , repair and reassemble a component.
    So my answer to your question is find books/info pertaining to simple electrical circuit's , basic hydraulic circuit design and a mechanical reference/machinist's books .

    -Always remember , in order to fix something it is important to first have a clear understanding of how it works .

    Pm me a email address and ill send you some links to some books that i learned from and still reference the material from .

    ^^^--- I'll second what he said, especially circuits. I was looking in a service manual for an auto transmission yesterday. Each part of it was diagrammed as a circuit.

    YouTube every time. There’s no limit to what you can find on there. Some of it bogus or sketchy but the comments call them out every time. Fantastic tool and free

    Not quite sure about what kind of body work you are thinking about, but if you are looking for the guys who can take a stack of sheet metal and turn it into a Shelby Cobra body or whatever they are working on that year you can find them here:
