    Lol! The Merc has been through a lot...After painting it red is when I found out it wasn't the color that was the problem..... I still have the 240Z Headlight buckets, I had to keep them for memories. Man was it ugly..

    I saw it last about 5 or so years ago in a garage in Wichita.

    And thanks for the links Sancho!!!
     
  5. I always wondered what happened to that Stude...and several other cars that used to make regular appearances at the sk500 and several kkoa events

    You can't have the Kustom blues anymore. The Merc is looking awesome. The changes you've made look great and I like the direction your taking it. I vote for gloss too. Looking forward to seeing it in Salina.

    LOL!! My Kustoms blues are getting better... Thanks guys for all of the feedback. I agree it needs to be painted shinny. We have a one more major modification and then it will be waiting to be painted. Excuse my quick photo shop, this is the direction that I'm going...... Looking forward to seeing you in Salina.
