Here is one of the many favorites I have from the shoot. Thanks for lookin!
merc getting some stuff done to it this week
haha, I am fighting the same stigma on my latest truck, i cannot stand being lumped in with that group.
Are you coming north for goodguy's chopt? if so my shop is right on the way, love for you to stop by.
I will be there. I have not missed one yet. I will be bringing the 36 ford coupe and the " rat rod " truck. Maybe something else if i can pull it off. Stop on by when you see the banner for the shop. I would have a beer waiting for ya, but it is so damn expensive!
yes sir, will look for you.
Can't wait to see how the Merc turns out! Looks like a pretty solid car.
Some parts are, some parts aren't. You know the merc territory. So when are we going to build you somethin?? I have a grab on a 57 2 door hardtop soon... or a 57 convertible....
I sure hope so!
here is a small update on the merc. Been doin a few things to OT cars so I have not had a lot to post. THat and who wants to see filler getting sanded? Really?
Picked up a 49 dash for her
getting some shape to her now!
So there has been quite a bit of progress on the merc lately. Here are a few pix of it
and finally off of the frame. Got a few parts from gambino for the suspension. Fatman stub, and a notch/4 link kit for the rear of it. Should look pretty interesting
Got the 58 jambed out. Ready for final sanding and paint. Which will include scallops
got some moer work done on the model A frame as well. It is now awaiting more parts. We need material for the torque arm, brake line tabs, and a few odds and ends so it can get all finish welded and sent off to powdercoat
Man I don't know how you do it,juggling all those projects at once.I can barely keep progress going on my car.Nice dash by the way looks to be a solid donor.
REAL solid. Think we are missing a few pieces of hinges for the glovebox door. That's it. Luckily, I get paid to do all of this. That's how I keep up!
Having an open house soon. Hope a few of you guys can make it!
a shamless bump for self promotion
The 58 chevy got the roof sprayed yesterday. Been workin on an OT camaro or I would be done already!
Some cool projects going on there.
I appreciate that. Tryin to mop up the last bit on the 58. Should have it painted by the end of the weekend. Well, that is the hope anyway!
No Fear here brother!! I admire your craftsmanship and great style eye. You don't just talk about the cars yer goin to build, you knockem out. Respect my man ~sololobo~
Now there is some words of encouragment! I needed that! Thanks! I have 2 cars that have to be painted in the next few days. Both of which are on the last steps of sanding. Then I have to build a frame or at least get it all fit together for the merc since the owner is flying in from overseas to see it. Anyone know how to weld???!!! HHEELLPP!!! HA HA!
another shameless bump for next saturday!
keep up the great work
Thanks man! You comin on saturday??
Got the 58 sprayed finally! had an issue with the tape bleeding on the scallops. Damn. But we intended on striping it with an outline anyway. So that will help a bit.
looks good im not sure about the rear tho lol kinda looks like a chin strap for a football helmet but im sure its that way for a reason
Customer's call. Not mine. That's for sure. Not waht I would have done if it were mine.
