    I am a car loving girl who lives in north Sweden with my husband and two kids.
    We build cars (kustoms,hotrods) at our spare time. I thoght I should start by showing my 1954 Mercury that we built 2015.

    Welcome to the Hamb @Sanna&Simon...That is quite graceful and gorgeous...bring on the pics and story and choose Full Image rather than Thumbnail as it deserves the BIG picture status...;)

    When we bought the car it was on a boat on its way to Sweden. This is how it looked when it arrived. DSCN7974.JPG
    We fixed the swedish registration then we started to work on the car immediately.

    When we was pleased with the chop we welded the roof back.

    We realized quickly if we wanted a nice line on the rear window we had to move everything forward. As you can se int the pictures we choped and moved everything in the back forward, even the trunk was modified. DSCN8709.JPG DSCN8783.JPG
    We made a window template in glasfibre and sent to Finland to get the front and rear windows done. DSCN8787.JPG

    Then it was time fore some paint! The car is toned in bluegreen color. Its hard to get it on a picture. We did the painting by ourself to. We still have the original interior, so thats why we painted it in a color near the original. DSCN9378.JPG DSCN9385.JPG

    Simon have also done some pinstriping on the car.

    The first wash after the assembly!

    Its a great car who runs smooth and the whole family can go for a ride!

    That red hot rod model A is also a car we have built. Maybe I must do a thread on that too?

    Great job!
    I was just looking at a stone stock one on FB market place this morning.
    The availability of having a new windshield made makes chopping one of theses less daunting
    Well done on all the body modifications as well.

    Great job. It is so pleasing to see a car out of the ordinary crop of customs, and done so well also.

    Thanks! We have been a couple in 12 years, under that time we have built a few cars and motorcyckles.:D

    At the moment we are building a 1940 Merc!

    Maybe I have to show you the other builds/renovations we done. ;)
