    Heres a pic of my mildly customed 52 four door. I think it turned out awesome. I know its not a merc but I hope it shows that not everything has to look one way to be cool.

    EXACTLY how I would do one. Only thing I had different in my mind's eye is a floating grille bar. That is absolutely freaking dead-on. I love them unchopped and without skirts. You don't usually find them that way...
     
  25. Rikster whats the front bumper on the 1st one?

    Looks like a stock bumper to me with a center piece made out of bend tubing molded to the bumper, then the whole things was replated.

    Here is s close up of it.
