Just a few minor things, like the new tailights, and the front fender's, glad I been doing this kinda stuff for over 30 years, I would say this is a wrap for the top. all the trim work will be chrome, or black, we'll see, but here ya go guys, thanx for hangin with me on this build, your feedback, is awesome:

Very clean work. Great to see a builder who does with plastic what a sheet metal artist can do with metal. Also, great fotos and fantastic close-ups. Thanx for the info.

Actually it a Carson top, the first Kustom soft top of it's time, like I think the mid to late '50s, not sure, very popular back then, seen on allot of kustom Merc's and Fords of that era, google Carson tops, and ya will see a plithara, of stuff.

Love the Carson top. It's going to look great and will make this Merc really stand out.

Hiya Andy, nah I don't mind one bit, ummmm, the Carson top? well as far as I know it was the first hard, soft top, a Kustom from the a guy, named Carson, was a really big hit in the late '50s for his tops, mostly used on the late Ford's and Mercury's but there are model T's and other car's that have the top, here let me me give ya a link, with plenty of images, just go here, and ya can see the many different styles of top's, and the era most pronounced in there use, hope this will help ya out bud, and thanx.
