Hi,

I start this project a few weeks........

20130309_221741_zpsf3d196bd.jpg

I did some modifications on the front........

But i did something diffident....... I strip the chrome and added a bullet stile cap to the front wheels...... also strip the chrome from the other parts. I will re chrome........

This build is off to a great start and really inspires me to get on to my '49 merc I have been wanting to start. I am totally digging the car you want to after. I love the bullets you added to the hubcaps... Nice little touch.

This is going to be an excellent build! The execution so far and attention to detail is really apparent in the final product.
