    Hi Pacorro,
    You did this RIGHT! The car looks great and is period correct also, very nice execution of a classic Kustom!

    @Pacorro, it's Right on the Money!! That's a very fine example of a period correct mild custom, love the 49 marker lights on a 50, tastefully shaved front and back, flush skirts, very nice tuck and roll interrior. The car is fantastic, don't let anyone tell you different. By the way, you don't need help from the hamb, you already are one of the experts here.

    Dragginwaggin what a stimulating comment, it seems that the years of financial sacrifices, hard work and many hours of research have been worth it, it is to recognize the generous and selfless work of my friends who were motivated when I presented my restoration project to them and they delivered 100%. But from that to being an expert there is a long way to go Dragginwaggin. I am honored and satisfied with my "Paco Blue"

    Wait, that’s a 49 isn’t it? I notice the front turning lamps, 50 or 49? Still beautiful though man! Nice color combo

    Well Merc Man, I have seen that the turning lamps are more beautiful on the 49 'and since it is mild custom they are very elegant, I think it is quite correct to put them. I'm glad you liked it

    It's a beautiful car and you have every right to be proud of it! I really like the color choices.

    Yeah, what is that rear window in the '51 above? I vaguely recall someone saying they used some Dodge pickup truck windshield moldings to eliminate the sharp lower corner on a '51 Mercury rear window and make it easier to lay down but I have no idea if that's what I'm looking at or not.

  16. Update. MSD BOX burn’t up and caused the spark to disappear, acting as if a electric fuel pump was bad. The fix: put my old dual point distributor back in, a new set of points, a ballast resistor, a new condenser&rotor. Found nothing wrong @ fuel pump. The old Flathead is ready for the next adventure.[​IMG]Thanks to @54delray & Mick@straykatkustoms, nice to hear from fellows that encourage others that are having issues with these older rides. Keep the Kustom Faith and lets Roll On.

    I recall reading about it, Rodders Journal Number Fifty Five. (Page 109)
    "Rick got a laminated repro piece of back glass and whittled it down to a slightly smaller, rounded, pleasing shape, and did considerably more work reshaping the opening (and rear roof/deck area) to accept it, along with an insert rubber seal and molding to match the other glass."

    Same article (page 106) also says,
    "Rear window opening sectioned and bottom corners rounded, recessed lip added to accommodate rubber and custom stainless molding"

    Guy's. Take a Hard Look at the red 51 Merc in Post #2863. Tell me what kind of rear window and trim it is using. Very Clean.
