    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.

    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

    Tim's Merc just keeps looking better all the time! I like the primer on the perfectly chopped top. Great design and metal work!
     
  12. Paint is the most agonizingly slow and painful but still the best part

    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.

    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

    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.....
