Alright I think ive been posting enough stuff here lately to start my own thread...







got some progress on the 49 merc,
....i put drip rails on it and added a belt line to separate the 2 colors i will be using. I also ended up making new trunk lines on the body and cleanned up the firewall as well as removing the molded in battery.
..another new mod i did to it was a frenched anttena...
this is the first coat of primer to see what is needed to be reworked,; there is tons of S#*T to be fixed but then again it is only my first time with about 70% of these modifications
...still got alot of work ahead...



let me know what you guys think.

got the body taken care of...i decided to paint it orange.
i am using pink as a base coat to make the orange brighter then what it would turn out to be.... the orange im using is the one that is on the hood.

as far as engine is concerned i am going with the 454 that comes with the 1970 impala, i have cut out the stacks from aluminum tubbing ( the engine is not finished yet).
...the interior will not be red anymore but i have not painted it yet.... ill prob paint it white
