Too cool! I'll be watching this one. I was planning on doing a forward flip hood on my Merc (49 Merc Extreme Custom) I just haven't got to that point with it yet.

Really nice build. The rims look pretty sick, I was surprised to see you didn't have to cut out the wheel wells. Look forward to the rest of the build.

So after looking at your build and looking at how you used those big rims it sparked an idea for some big rims and a merc I have sitting around so I wanted to thank you for the inspiration.
