What i think is so cool is that they even finished the ends of the shackles. Times and tools were totally different but they still took the time to put a nice radius on the end.

Just flat out cool. Can't wait to see more!

I don't know how I missed this 'til now, but it's on my subscription list.. I think I will just nose around your account and subscribe to every thread you've started!

Yet another beautiful 1st generation Mercury custom in the Sledge collection!

Thanks guys. Not much happening with this one right now, just collecting parts. I did manage to get the motor running so with a little work I should be able to get it driving. The plan is just to drive it the way it is for a while then eventually do a full restoration!
