  1. I can see it was the Menges Brothers first attempt as some of the fit isn't prefect, but that's the charm min these customs and you got it. Cool. There is s cool feature the brothers did with stainless steel molding running from the front edge of the doors, a mid ship, going almost all the way to the trunk opening. Give the distinct line of movement. Nice touch.

  2. Yes indeed cool that its one of their first builts ;-) I met the bro's in 2018,they are nice and their skills have grown beyond. love their work!
