Weimer, I'd say the swap for the '49 is worth it. I had a '50 that was tricked out to the max. My first real custom that I liked. If you do end up getting it I'd be glad to help with anything you may need since I've done it already. I'd love to have anotherone one day unless I can find a Merc, but thats a fat chance so lemme know, be glad to help.
Viking, you really a viking? Heh, nice work, I bet it helps on your prodjects as well as others to see what it would look like before you put the work into it. I do mine the old fashioned way, pencil and paper, I'm to old to learn the new stuff, don't have the paitents if I did. Keep it up.
