Just bought a 9 tooth desoto grille! Not sure what the plan is with it yet, but couldn't pass it up.
how is this for laid out? Just re did you he rear bags
Ohh, thats going to look good. You ever sell your taillights? Whats your plan on the new ones
Do you want them? I am going 50 Pontiac speedway LED
Thanks, but the the guy before me modified the lights and frenched them at a 30° angle. Not sure if ill keep them that way. They are growing on me though. I'll get a pic tomorrow. Not going stock no matter what. I thought you already had bags on the car
Dude! Merc meet! Gimme a month
Are you going to change the bumpers back to chrome?
Im not much of a chrome kinda guy. I will probably have to get a new rear bumper anyways but they will more than likely get painted again
50s cars need chrome bumpers. A new front bumper sure helped the look of my 50 ford.
If you must paint 'em try silver.
Not to be critical here at all but the red highlights are really grabbing the eye and taking the flow of the car and giving it a circus sort of vibe.Im only saying this cause im far enough away that it wont be easy for you to kick my ass .Also ,if you get some vibrations ,look to the semi solid motor mounts.Nice car!!
No worries guys. I'll give the chrome some extra thought. Body and paint work will be next year. Thx for the input
Selling the grille. I.M . if interested $300
Shitty chrome is better than paint....
Painted bumpers will give it an 80's feel if that is your goal.
Thanks, ill put chome on eventually.
Shes running like a charm and just switched grills
my 50 mercury is jealous, it flips me shit every time i walk by it and says" GET ME RUNNING ASSHOLE"!
Looking good man. I'm working on my families '50 as well. We've had it since the early 80's.
Looks really clean! Up and running?
Yeah! I like to see the chrome bumpers, good choice!
Do you have a photo thread? I want to see more of your car, looks real nice!!!
Just got it running. Still need to sort it out!
Thanks! Yes, here...http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/the-heirloom-merc.982595/
