    A little more progress... Cleaning up the rest of the body so i can get to bodywork and the front fenders, inner fenders, front valance pan, running boards and grille have been removed so they can be sent to get sandblasted inside and out. The new grille is on it's way as well!

    Will you be using any lead when you finalise the body?

    I wont. I'd love to, but modern fillers are what will be used on this car. I hope to use lead on my '49 merc next year. I've got 10 lbs ready to go!

    One night I stayed up and watched You Tube videos with the legend, Bill Hines...

    I stayed up for hours watching that guy work his magic. What a incredible guy!!!

    Fabulous work!! As the Ex owner of both a ford and merc coupe I wish I had had the balls to attempt even a small amount of the customizing you are doing.
    The rotary stripper your using, is it really as good as claimed?? Ralphie

    Thank you very much!

    Ralphie, i really like my Contour SCT. I have used everything from bristle discs to mudhogs with 36g to flap discs to remove paint and surface rust, and i like the SCT the best. If you have a car that isn't solid surface rust and you need it shiny quick, i highly recommend trying it.

  12. On it's way to the intersection of Killer avenue and Bitchin' street! Like a caveman, I didn't know what a SCT tool was until today. Feels good to learn something...it's been a few years. Nice project you have!

    The SCT is a necessity in my opinion. I'm glad i could help Chucky! Haha!

    You guys can get spots #5&6 in the fan club! Haha! I've got some stuff coming out pretty soon... Here's a sneak peek. And T-shirts by Von Franco are already available. Nevermind the t-shirt model, just a guy i found on the street. Send me a PM if ya need something! 20181017_111447.jpg 20180822_154223.jpg

    Does that guy happen to be your "twin"? Hmmm

    That is a cool shirt. It's tempting....
