    Nice work on your brackets. Do you have a picture of what your motor mounts look like? where they custom?
     
  2. Very nice work on the merc and a good looking stable of deuces in your killer shop. Love those Buick motors...

    I know the custom guys won't agree with me but I think your Merc is by far the nicest one on here. Love the look and your choice of engine.
