Your Merc is looking like it is closer to the enjoyment (driving) phase of the project. Looking good, great work.

Cool, Matt. Thanks Ive been looking also. I'm even thinking about using one of the other knobs that are in good shape. Maybe the heater knobs.
Great job Ether, I admire your dedication and skill. I'm hoping your work will inspire me to get going on my '51 Merc.
Congrats on the progress. I've enjoyed watching the Merc build over the years.
You have a lot to be proud of...
Happy Trails, Mick
Soooooooooooo, Chad now that next Merc is out of the basement and you have some square footage open what are you gonna drag home to fill in the empty real estate!!!!!!!!! Regards, Rhys.
Well..... bodyman went on his cruise. Should be back the first week of Oct. Going to take some color choices to the painter for a couple panel spray outs. Its been so busy in the shop I havent had time to think about it. Did some work on this one while its been gone. Just a wore out, old duece.
Cannot wait to see this car finished. This is going to be one of the best looking cars ever. Love it!
Is that Chuck's buddy's car? I think I've seen that car at DF. Looks like you did a good job from the pictures. Can't wait to see some more progess pics on the merc. Paint guy went on a cruise. Hmmmmmmmm - fat merc in for paint, progress payments, ah ha! Cruise!
