    More Merc, less silly action figures.

    Some guys just can't let it go....who's thread is this anyways? :rolleyes:

    I know it's in the past, and I ove that you're doing it up and doing it right, but the thing that gets me - I mean REALLY gets me - is how someone, maybe more than one shop - could do this (a) to a car and (b) to another person. We all know about "Buyers Beware", but there reallly should be more recourse against the people who passed this off as a finished vehicle, against whoever sold it to you and even the guys that didn't look under the car when you asked them/paid them to look it over.

    Anyways, great thread, great job getting past the "crusty bunch" around here and hopefully you're driving it real soon!

    Yay me! I'm now a member of the crusty bunch. :rolleyes:

    Sorry, I didn't realize this was the Hokey Ass Marvel Board. I come to see hot rods and customs like the T you're building. Which, I might add, has a lack of super heroes appearing in it. You should add some. :D

    Thanks for the encouraging words guys.. I cant wait til the day I drive it. again.

    If I could do it all over again, I would have researched a little more, but I don't think it would have mattered. I love this car. I plan to be buried in it...

    Just finished all 26 pages, and what a rollercoaster ride! I'll be watching for more.

    Hugo, much much earlier in the thread you mentioned doing Packard rear quarters and taillights; I imagine you've dropped that idea, but what are you thinking of now for the rear end treatment?

    Finally, Thor is a great choice for the name; but if it were me, after all those waves were removed from the body, I'd have gone with a play on words and called it ¿Qué Onda? :D
     
  9. I too came back for a look and glad that progress is still being made. Great job.
     
  10. Take your time, this hobby can't get expensive if you don't have any body/paint skillz which I don't.
     
  11. Just found this thread after buying a more door '50 Merc. What a journey, and what a difference reworking the roof has made, great job. Look forward to the updates.

    I have a 41 Graham, it is a two many doored car. I have seen a couple turned into 2drs and I think they are really good looking. I have a two doored 49 Merc. and think they are better looking than a 4dr. But if you like 4 doors, all power to you, it is yours. I read from page 1 to 27 today and must say you have stuck to this project like a person bit by the Custom Car Bug. Congratulations for carrying it through, it will be a car you will be proud of to drive. Looking forward to seeing at completion.

    Looking forward to it, thanks for the reply. Found this old thread that I hadn't seen before and winced a bit in the beginning but was really liking the direction it was taking when last updated. Would love to see where it's at now.
