    Split the banana shaped rocker and added some metal in order to get everything on the same plane prior to molding the fender to the rocker and rounding the door corners. image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg

    Thanks. The hood wound up pancaked an inch or two so the car feels a little wider.

    Are you planing on "real" paint for the body now or will it be primer again?

    I think it's going to end up in hot rod flatz for now. Similar to this.

    The Hirohata Merc got its Caddy motor transplant just days prior to its famous cross country road trip,
    so I guess it's never too late!

    Maybe the similarly finished scoop on this beautiful Merc will help keep you inspired!
