A guy told me where there was a couple of 54-Ford bodies at. So If I do build my Convertible Lincholn/Mercury, I'm going to splice the Stretched out quarter panels onto one of the 54's. My car has no doors, or anything, since it was two-cars that some kids welded together back in the early 60's.

I was thinking of cutting the top of my merc-quarters and the stretched fins off with a Sawzall, then cutting the same pieces off of the 54. The welding the Merc-top to the Ford bottom. Since the lower half of my Merc is pretty rough.

I started getting together pieces to build my Ford-Truck hood vehicle, and tomorrow I'm going to start cutting....should be interesting.
