    Nice, I love the skirts!!
     
  7. Thanks for the comments. I think we will have the whole car painted by the new year. Larry and crew are spraying the lizard skin on the inside and underside this week and will paint it after Christmas until then here are a couple more pics. I am liking the way the paints pearl sparkles in the light.

  8. Think I found the caps I am wanting to run on the mercury. Everything else is so smoothed I think this will complement the car

  11. Yea I like the smooth skirts. We decided againstnthe 51 skirts cause we thought the lip on it would take away from the body lines. We may roll the lip a bit to clear the tires but we will see

  12. Ok guys Larry and crew are getting some paint on the mercury. They have got the lizard skin sprayed under and inside. They also got the underside painted and they are getting it ready to paint the top side of it. I am so happy to see some paint on any part of this car. It has been a few years since I have seen paint on her.

    Also hope your car is coming along nicely.
