Outstanding! ..."El Guapo",is getting more guapo...you're getting there Bud.
Well we got most the metal work done on it and the car runs and drives now but I had to take a break to finish my old 39 sedan for Rex from the gearheads, I got carried away and blew the whole thing apart and did a frame off, it's painted a light metalic blue with tiki flake on it and it is just aboat done, we also started on a 32 three window and we finished a 72 el camino, so like you , I have been busy with customer cars..
You are incredible! Fantastic work, buddy!
im with J.B ,really good work ,amazing
Great work Kev! That metal working is the ducks guts! Awesome!
Hey Kev ,when do you plan to move it outside with new tires and such so we can appreciate in the daylight????curious as heck to have an open wiew!!
Ah,put sunglasses on,that top might be shining a lot
Looks great Kev! Awesome job-
Thanks! Yesterday was finally judgment day for the merc. It's the first time out of the garage since the work began and Im really pleased with how it's turning out! Normally when I chop a car I like to roll it out several times during the process to get a far away look at the shape, but since I was basically recreating the chop from my merc I didn't really need to this time. Still need to lower the front a couple inches but I think the back is perfect. Oh and It got a fresh set of powder coated wheels and brand new 6:00 16" Lesters!
I still need to metalfinish the passenger side but the basic shape is right.
The drivers side is all metalfinished with the exception of the front windshield area.
Thats about it for a while. Were going to take a little break and hunt for some parts, but I'll be back on it soon! Thanks again for all the positive comments!
Awesome man! Look at that flow!!!
Yes, you nailed it!!!
Man... that's absolutely gorgeous. Fantastic work, dude!

You can't take a break...you got too many unfinished projects in the yard and garage!
