    I always start with junk, even the stuff that looks good to start ends up as junk on closer inspection. Just have to bite the bullet and do what I can .

    Just took delivery of the roadster, looked good in the pics, had a hankering there was a bit of filler in it but took a chance .. Hey ho, more of the same LOL Its all fixable so just have to knuckle down.. new quarters and upper deck lid on order, trying to scare up cash from selling some stuff to raise funds for door skins, Im really tight and try to fund this stuff from a bit of trading :) Sold my Mitchell to fund the rear quarters.. gotta do what you gotta do.. Shipping stuff to the UK is a fortune .. :(

    First photo just after the first engine swap...off to the body shop.
    Second photo not long after I got it back from paint.
    Third photo with the original owner after taking her for a ride. She was an awesome lady and close family friend. 697BF8A7-F223-4D92-9C45-A034157EFEF4.jpeg

    Very nice Merc John. The only thing missing is a Deuce grill. I guess you could put one in the back seat just to look at.

    It's been painted a few times over all these years.

    My old 41 Pontiac...5 minutes after the flames were unmasked and pinstriping was done, I hated them....traded it for a super chopped 50 ford.
