    I was expecting not to care for the "raise" but have to admit that I'm surprised to find that I actually like it. Looks good.
     
  3. I think most guys won't even notice....
     
  4. I can't imagine driving around with it lower than you have it now, I'd be busting holes in my oil pan from manhole covers etc.

  6. I DID!!!!!! I'm on my third oilpan! Matt welded it up the last time I fucked it up. It was 1 1/2" off the ground. Now it's at least 4", clear.

    Will try to get some pics up soon of my newest project, a barn find 55 mercury montclair 2 dr hardtop. Its an original one owner car that would still be driving had it been taken better care of but being stuck out in a shed from 1969 till this weekend took its toll on paint and interior but saved a lot of other stuff. Since its the best of the bunch i think its the one to redo and the hardest part will be trying to decide which of the other mercs must go to pay for this ones resurrection,LOL
     
  10. Everyone should have that problem,hahaha!!! Hope to see some pic's.
     
  11. HAHAHA! I forgot...you were there!!!

    I was there enjoying all the mercs.
     
  13. Well, I'm a glutton for punishment. I just cant stand to see a hacked up Merc that needs help. I picked up these two today (50 coupe and 51 moredoor) from LAYDRAG (he didnt do the work either) and plan on using the two and a bunch of parts Ive got layin around to make her pretty again!!! This is textbook for how NOT to chop a Merc or how to really "F" one up!!! Who ever chopped this one should have their torch swapped for knitting needles!!!!!!!!!!! Big thanks to NOUHUH and BENNETTAMX for helping get them home. Stay tuned for a crapload of surgery!

    Before i spend the money to have my tredelvac/bendix style power brake booster rebuilt
    are you guys who still run one happy with the way they stop or should i upgrade. On a later style power brake setup is my pedal assy going to work or will it need major mods as well?
     
  20. I'm not familiar with those. maybe someone else can help you with some info.

    Thanks Bob. Ahh....433, a nice round number. Most people say without pics it didn't happen, but I promise pics soon. The boss says I can't play with it til I finish my current work and get the dishes done. I am secretly sharpening my sawzall blades.

    I like this one. Any info on it?

    Check with HAMB member 51Gringo on that one. He either owns it or built it I think.
