    Not one single thing I'd change thus far. This just may turn out to be one of the better Mercs built in this generation!

    Thanks for all the kind words guys.

    I've got a few minutes so i'll post up a few more pictures Of how the chop went down.

    With the the back glass laid in where I wanted it
    It was on to nailing the a + b posts in place.

    Then onto figuring out the area above back glass.... Making this thing flow.

    Ok with the back glass partially in place it was time to venture onto the c posts.

    This is where things get real interesting!

    The point of no return.

    Cutting the c-posts out all the way to the b's allowed for the roof skin to be raised and made for a very smooth transition into the back Glass. Not the most common way to get things to flow but the results were what I was after.

    This is my favorite part of the entire chop.... The Belt-line ties in exactly as it did from the factory. This area was extremely time consuming!
