    Anyone have any information about some of the part manufactures Mercuryland got their items from? I procrastinated too long or didn't have the cash at the time, and learned they went out of business. Everyone I ever spoke with said their rockers were quality, along with Mike Stude @ Green Mountain. I've read Mike won't be making anymore til spring, and that is if he gets a big enough order in. I've tried using all the resources I have to track down who their distributor was, but without luck. Does Mercury Joel have a HAMB account? Anyone have any info who Mercuryland got their rockers from or a way to find out? Looks like my only other option would be the ones Summit sells (Sherman). Thanks...

    Matt, I think you need to pursue making rockers. I'm in need of some too and I'm getting tired of waiting on Mike Stude to make some.

    That's why I went another route on mine. Got them from Papke before he passed.
     
  7. I got a pair from mercury land before he closed and got a set from green mountain too. Hit with a pm if interested.

  8. If you don't have a sheet metal break big enough to make them, cut out a cross section and have them made up at your local sheet metal shop. Cheaper and better than any panels I've bought.

    Their toast Matt! Thanks though, and like others have posted in the past, you should make them. All your other work is primo! So I know you'd kill it if you made a pair! Keep me posted...
     
  10. Yes, Please make them, I am in need of the upper & lower plus some work to the floor.
