Here's a project that I've been tinkering on for a couple of years now. After having large projects that seem to progress slowly (because building cars for others is my full time job) I wanted a car that ran and drove to build up and drive while doing so. My brother had bought this Mercury long ago at an auction and it literally sat out in a field until someday someone might do something with it. My painter friend and I were painting wheels for my Roadster one day and had some time to spare between coats. He asked about the Merc out in the field so I told him it was basically a "one day" project. He asked if I wanted to paint it? I said sure, so there we went. I pulled it out of the field. We prepped it with what little tools we had there on location and sprayed it that afternoon with a quick temporary paint job.
