Cool that's nice I'm working on my son's 51 merc that was chopped by Bill Hinez and Brad Masterson but I would like to know how to install the buick side trim never done it thank's if you have any idia how to do it
Well...you're easy to please! haha
I'd like to check that out! Is it the one they chopped at the show in Kansas? I've never installed the Buick trim on a Merc, but it's just a matter of positioning it where you want it, cutting it to fit the door gaps and body, and making new holes. Most of the Barris trim swaps in the old days were just butted up with the seams showing, but nowadays you can tig weld it back together. Send Brad a message on here and I'm sure he can offer more advice on that particular trim swap.
oh no Rob, i assure you i'm not ! i'm a kustom taliban, thinking chopped stocker are not real kustoms ! and your attention to detail, flawless work , and search to perfection is pure kustom porn ! thanks for sharing !
Thank you for the kind words, ZED!
Damn... Great Job Rob! Looks amazing!
Nice, I was thinking that was a Lincoln rear bumper which I have thought about running at some point.
51 Caddy rear bumper with 50 guards. I had a 51 Lincoln rear bumper for it but decided not to use it
Jim at J&M Design here in Temecula got Lee's Merc in primer...bodywork will be done later on...just an epoxy to keep everything from rusting.
Sure looks good....Hope to see this running around.
Looking to start back up on this project and I'm in need of a shop to finish it up. Prefer a shop that has skills and know how working on Mercs. I would like to find a one stop shop. Needs bodywork, paint, glass, trim, body to frame swap, new rolling frame finished, engine and tranny swap. Any takers or suggestions please PM me. Thanks!
