    yes it's painted and getting put back together. sorry no time to post pics right now!

    The original trim just wouldn't work so I ended up making it out of solid half round brass that's been chrome plated. ok, back to work now!

    Thanks, it hard for me to describe how happy i am these days, the car is stunning....

    Thanks, Rik Hoving Kustoms for doing all the exiting ideas for this project. The prewar roof chop and all the small details like trim, and hubcaps among the many changes on the car, you really have made a true prewar Kustom.

    BIG BIG Thanks to kevan Sledge for the very perfect metalwork and getting it done in such a short time on the car and for doing the details, for the first time i finally meet Kevan, and what a nice guy he is, i am looking forward to see you again.

    Thanks to Adam Aka "Shugwhite" for the fantastic Paintjob, This is really an amazing paintjob, really looking forward to meet you there Adam.

    Thanks to all the people involved in doing this car
    Thanks everybody, we are having a fantastic trip, please drop by at GNRS

    You sound like you are pretty well made up Tim, and rightly so. The merc is absolutely perfect.

    I'm sure we'll get one when Kevan is back from the show, but if anyone can post up some side shots square on I'd be grateful.

    Man Tim must be grinning like fuck right know. Cloud nine stuff I'd hazard a guess.
