I love it and can't stop checking back for progress pics. Beauty.
Sledge,did those Mercs in CT find a good home?
Amazing job on the merc! Hope to use a few of your ideas on my 40 sedan! Thanks!
Hey Kenny, not much snow yet but lots of cold! The weatherstrip pieces are stainless on 39 and steel on 40 mercs. Or at least it is on the ones I have here.
Lots of late hours and Adam has the roof finally in Primer!
Wow looks great!!

Looks fantastic, great work Kevan and Adam.
Only a couple of weeks to go... Can't wait to see it in person.
Keep it up, Kevan! Hope you don't kill yourself with stress.
Really looking forward to see it finished.
Ohh bugger, pretty sure Hewlett Packard keyboards aren't drool proof.
Kevan you and Adam are definately doing that roof some serious credit. This merc is going to be a belter, stirling work
Fantastic to see the roof in primer..Rik you did an outstanding design here.. i am glad Tim had the guts to do it! Kevan and Adam, great work!
happy new year to everyone!
Tim's Merc just keeps looking better all the time! I like the primer on the perfectly chopped top. Great design and metal work!
Paint is the most agonizingly slow and painful but still the best part
wow! what a car !!!! nice work
Awesome! Looks great in primer!
Wow, just wow. I love how the primer shows how you left the line between the roof and the rest of the body. Its one of those details that make the car look early, and right.
Yeahhh..almost there...well worth the sweating and hard work....hat off to the whole team...history in the making ,no doubt
Yeah the Mercury turns out great
Rik do a fantastic job keeping me on track, keeping the car era correct and Kevan did the roof, alot of details and the stainless perfect, Adam thanks you do a hell of a job making it smooth as an glazed Apple

How is the car coming along? Looking forward to seeing the pictures of it at the GNRS in Pomona.
Sorry for not posting much right now, we're just working hard to get all the details done. I will post some pics in the next few days!

Seeing this car in person is why I just booked a plane ticket to Cali, I'm excited
Ahh Merc fix, thank you, I can feel it coursing through my veins! What with Tim's car and just finding the thread Kevan started last year on his convertible I'm enjoying the HAMB more and more each day.
Keep plugging away Kevan, you'll be reaping the rewards soon enough
And now its painted, right?
Kevan i see you have trim holes back in the roof. Did you have to modify the stainless very much? beautiful touch can't wait to see it all done.....
