Body work continues on the Merc.  Filler is getting spread, correcting all of my welding and rust repair sins.











I also scored a NOS piece of tailgate trim on Flea-Bay this week.  $20 was a pretty good deal, but then again I may be the only person in the country (world???) currently restoring / building one of these wagons.



I also dug a 430 MEL out of the woods 2 weekends ago.  With the 6-71 hanging on the wall of the shop, I may just have to build something to pull behind the wagon,  FED maybe.....  Or since this is the Land of 10,000+ lakes, a MEL powered boat perhaps.......

Happy Winter Solstice to me.  Greg Jr. got the Merc primered today.  He also layed out an idea for the panel paint with the guide coat.  I am going to bring the dash down there on Monday and we will try to finalize the panel layout.  Now they can start blocking the car down.  Color will be soon.  Stay tuned.

Yep - 2015.  Unfortunately, there is way to much work to do yet for this year's show.  I still have to finish the wiring harness, trim, bumpers, and glass when it comes back from the painters.  And after that, it goes down to Stillwater to finish the upholstery.  With any luck it will be driven by late summer / early fall.

More paint pics.

The paint is done.  Time to start polishing trim, installing windows, finish the wiring, build the grill, hang bumpers and exhaust tips.....
