rob your my new hero!!! those skirts look sick!!!!! you have mad patience!
The comment on the chop is just a selfish desire, I think a chop will compliment this smooth custom to the max. Carry on dudes, she is lookin awesome, the 54 t.l. are dead on. Love it Love it, yes, I love it. ~sololobo~
the skirts are sick! you do some really clean repairs! especially when you make a panel from scratch.
Very nice,thanks for the progress pics!!
Wow, thank you guys for all of the kind words! I'm off for the summer and making some great progress. I'm about 90% finished with frenching the skirts...passenger side is completed. Next up is rockers, floors, lower cowl, etc...then chop
Thanks again for following the build,
outstanding work Rob!!!

Can I get the web site where you seen the pictures and also could you share with me the pin and latch idea? Thank You
i remember i was followin your progress of your 'box on Ruffrodders many years ago when it still had bags and was real impressed w/ the quality of your work.
As difficult as it seems i can see an incredible improvement of your skills, some thing i didnt think possible back then.

Love those skirts!!!!! The spring/hatch idea is terrific....
Flush-fit skirts on Mercs rock, car looks great.
Putting in some serious work and craftsmanship my friend.
Beautiful work. The grille opening is perfect, and the skirts, with the shaped opening look killer.
Top notch job as ever Rob ! very inspiring, thanks for sharing the pics

Very very nice, it's really taking shape now. I love all the metal work your doing her, thanks for all the pic & info.
Wow, what a great '51. I'll need to watch this thread for progress....
looking real good, like the work on the skirts.
Why did you cut out the top of the 1/4 window frame? Does that help eliminate the need to either relief cut, or replace metal on the roof above it?
cretin, the quarter window area was cut separate and slid back to keep the openings their original length.
