    Thanks for the kind words.....you ask what the plans are.
    i need to get the interior done in one way or another, maby try to copy
    Buster Littons old interior or maby make an interior based on my own designs:confused:
    ill search for garnish moldings from a 51 victoria but cant find any?
    the best would be to have a complete victoria interior.
    i also going to install rear armrests from a Victoria

  4. that shoebox kicks ass! nicely done, man. this is how kustoms are truly built. by having guts and seriously thinking out of the box. i came across that merc on the net awhile back and did a drawing of how i would finish it, just let me know and i'll show you a pic of it. does it have a build thread? i'd love to see it.
