I stuck it out got to be good friends with him. He taught me how to work metal ,how to gas weld and how to do lead body work.....and how to cuss
when things did not go right !
Sorry Vince I missed a bunch of the last page ,that merc looks great...
Riot ....go for it ... you'll be glad you did...even if you totaly destroy the first hood theres still a bunch of them out there...it looks to me like the 57 top grill molding ,vette grill and the 56 bumper is a pretty common conversion but I really like the 55 headlight buckets a lot better.Wernt you thinking of doing that or was that someone else....
