One more photo.  The Merc comes home this weekend.  Jennie has done an excellent job with the interior.

The car has been back home now for about a month.  I have the exterior completely finished except for the radio antenna.  I just need to finish the dash, finish glueing in the door weatherstripping, and plumb the HVAC.

I decided to fab up a stainless tube grill, "cause you know - it is easier...."

It will be at Prime Steel for sure.  I was hoping to make it to Gopher State as well, but that is the same weekend as Prime Steel, so maybe next year.  I haven't made my mind up about Toppers yet.  I may drag it out to Jamestown if they decide to have their indoor show again this year.  I wouldn't mind doing either Minot or Duluth either.  We will see what the new year brings.

Just about the end.  I have all the wiring and under dash componentry completed.  Just need to touch a few things up under the hood, and it will effectively be complete.  I will have to bring it in for an alignment and AC charge when things warm up a bit.

Thanks for building it the way you did. Every detail of this car is awesome, great work.
