    a friend, who also built a mercury 1939, helped me to get hold of an original top, with all original parts from one of the few new sold in Sweden

    I was never really satisfied with the interior he did a poor job. and you sat not nice, so I bought a new seat last spring and now I get help to move over the leather to it

    This is the worst part, but I will rebuild the rear seat too

    I was getting the seat today, a 60's ford seat custom built to look older.
    I think she did a good job

    then the job continues with the front suspension and steering, It will probably run for another year with the old flathead before the Mercury gets a new Engine

    I welded on the perch and then turned them down

    Now begins the front end be reassembled
