I have been around your new Merc quite a few times over the years. It was a pretty good runner at one point. I helped with the brakes. (not successfully) It was always interesting to be around a stocker for a change. I believe it had some front end parts donated off of a Merc I owned at one point. It now belongs to and was built by Scott49Mercury here in Idaho Falls. I might have some old photos of your new Merc. PM me if you are interested. Congratulations!
