Re: Building a 1960 Mercury Park Lane convertible

Your build is still going nicely. Sorry I haven't been on in a while. I'm currently building a factory in Nevada, and still running down to L.A. to manage the other.

Completed motor photos soon! What a chore. I think we had to go through 5 maybe six motors to complete two good ones.
