Decided to take a break from GT and Rally cars with this 1949 Mercury. Some aftermarket parts like the dice, upholstery and wheels. The paint is Testors (RIP) Icey Blue which went on easily and didn't require any sanding/buffing. If I had to do it again, I'd spend more time on the engine but I was "done" and ready to move on.

Nice Merc! Don't worry about the engine, most customs didn't have much flash in the engine compartment and were almost always shown with the hood closed to show off the body lines. -RRR

Thanks. I can't say that was my reason - but I'll go with it!
