Had a Couple hours to kill
Hit a small park that had a pond in it and found some clad and a Merc that was in bad shape. I have found about 4 mercs to date and everyone has been in bad shape and figured this one was too. When I got done cleaning I was surprised how good the 1945 w merc cleaned up.

I second that motion...well done indeed. It doesn't even look like it could turn out that well.

Nice! How did you clean it?
Listen-- are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life?
