    This is the second generation of my Chopped 56 Mercury Montclair.
    It was the victim of a hit and run July 2017. I was completely sick about it and turned it over to
    Isaac Almendarez of Pinnacle Refinish here in Dallas Texas.
    He asked me if I trusted him. I said yes.
    That is all that was said.

    This is the car now. The entire paint concept was all his. I didn't even know what colors he had in mind when he started the repair and new paint.

    Beautiful custom.
    Turned out great.
    Love the chopped top and the 50 Merc rear window.

    The '56 looks bitchin' and thanks for the nice selection of pics. It's great to be able to trust someone
    enough to put the project in their hands without fear or interference.

    Yes that was me. Season one Episode one. way before they even knew it would get picked up for air.
    I was sitting in the garage working on THIS merc when everyone started calling and texting saying I was on TV. I was like... no I'm not, I'm at home in my garage! I got stuff to do! 4dd.jpg 4dd.jpg 4d.jpg 4g.jpg
