    WE ARE BUILDING ANOTHER WILD KUSTOM 49 MERC. THE OWNER HAS ALREADY NAMED IT "SUPER BAD" WE HAD TO MAKE A VERY SPECIAL FRAME FOR THIS MERC AS IT WILL BE POWERED BUY A 800+HP BIG BLOCK CHEVY BUILT BY NIELSON RACING MOTORS. WE KEEP THE STOCK FRAME BUT HIGHTLY MODIFIED IT TO BE ABLE TO HANDLE ALL THE TORKE THAT THIS MONSTER BBC PUTS OUT. WE REINFORCED THE STOCK FRAME WITH A 6" SQUARE TUBE RUNNING FROM THE MID PLATE ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE REAR LADDER BAR PIVOT MOUNTS. THIS TUBE WILL ALSO HAVE THE EXAUST RUNNING THROUGH THE CENTER AS A GUARD AND HEAT SHIELD. TO HELP STOP THIS MONSTER WE ARE PUTTING 13" DIA BRAKE ROTORS WITH 4 PISTON CALIPERS ON ALL 4 CORNERS. WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED AS WE GO. GB, RICK & CAROL ERICKSON

    That really is a bad ass Merc.  Would love to see some more pics - and more detail on the build - and more detail of that rear suspension.

    Need your imput on this center console, You like or you donot like. We are going to be using bucket seats up front and a bench seat in the rear. Wanted some kind of floating center console that acsented the body mods so i came up with this idea. I modified 2 55 buick bumper butites and rolled a tapperd cone to form this console. Its not finished but you can get an idea of what it will look like. I plan to make the bulites removable so they can be chrome plated with the main tube painted. I also plant to make it open and the shifter will be coming through it also. Oh i also plan to cut 4 1/4" wide slots in the main tube front to rear straight across from each other and inserting a colored plexiglass making short finnes on both sides with a light inside that will make the plexiglass glow in low light. Thanks, Rick
