the original 49-50 front fenders have a bump similar that for the park light.
I have couple of these imperial benders. They are very nice for Nicopp and steel. The handles are adjustable for a full 180 degree bend....
You can kind of see my horrible fab skills in this pic. It’s the unpainted sheetmetal that runs from the radiator to the upper grill shell....
Speaking from experience, those are home made air dams to funnel all the air through the radiator. I built one for my merc but it wasnt that...
This is why I'm running it through the radiator. Every newer car I've ever had has been like this and I intend to drive this car in most conditions.
Looking at this cooler for my trans. It'll go at the...

Got some parts this week for my Merc. Just wanted to see if what I have will work together.

This is a good idea but I need the inner shaft to turn. the outer shaft will have gussets welded to it and then be bolted to the frame. The inside...
i have a professional welder who can do the final welds for me. I was just going to tack all of it together and let him finish weld.

I'm trying to make a pivot rod for an underfloor brake system to move the MC & booster further outboard to make room for the exhaust. I need the...

Doing assembly on my freshly narrowed 9" and had a few questions (yes, I've searched).
1. Is the gasket between the brake backing plate and...
Ugh! I need to get mine back on the road.

Kustom car revival.
The ONLY pure custom show in the USA.
Im headed to it again this year.
I like to go. It's usually pretty packed. I remember seeing lots of model A stuff there.
Ooof! Be still my heart.I'd love to see more pics of this '51.
Dont think it was ever finished.
When setting the wheelbase, can it be done with the weight off the suspension or does it have to be done at approximate ride height? Just wondering.
fantastic metal work and kudos for not chopping it. looks like the rear suspension is truck arms. any way to get some pics of the setup?
More info than you'll ever need on sound deadening.
Adams polishes has a matte detailer.
I talked to posies and they said to use 2" blocks. they also said the springs will settle about another inch. I can live with that. I will make...
Finally put the new stock frame under the Merc. It has posies super slides and 4" blocks in the rear. I've seen other Mercs with the same combo,...
