So to get you all up to date on the progress lets get started.
First we have the motor all stripped and cleaned
Posted Image
Interior was stripped and now repainted and going back together
Posted Image
Here you can see the frame has been stripped and now repainted and I cut some springs for the shocks just for a little detail to which this undercarriage has none
Posted Image
test fit the axle..loookin good
Posted Image
Here is the front axle after stripping and repaint and now just some detail painting just for a little intrest
Posted Image
Interior is all painted
Posted Image
The front grill was trimmed down a tad and cleaned up,just had to get rid of that heavy chrome..it lost alot of weight.
Posted Image
This is where I go crazy trying to figure out rims and wheels but I have the front ones figured and already drilled, and pins from the 49 merc kit are going to work just fine.

The paint is lime Ice
