Max Fish, of Bio Kustumz, Winchester, California, came to me last summer with a real challenge- to build both a left and a right facing Mercury God Head for the ‘51 Mercury he was customizing for Jerry Horton, guitar player for Papa Roach. He sent me a hubcap to work from that had the Mercury Head in the center. This was just the starting point, as the new ones needed to be much more dimensional. They were going in a ¼” deep ring at the end of the side trim on the car.
It took a while- faces are difficult. Probably the hardest part was getting the lips to look like they belonged on the God Head instead of Mick Jagger, lol.
