I Agree hey - iam just technologically challenged and that is the reason why i have not been posting. Have decided to finish up the 69 Cuda first this year and will go on to finish the 68 once the 69 is done. Will post some pics of the build in this regard.

Front brake calipers rebuilt with new kits, rear drums skimmed, new shoes and slave cylinders rebuilt with new kits, handbrake cable hooked up,
Next is buying master cylinder, painless wiring loom, engine bore and hone, rebuild kit......
Got the engine mounts and tranny crossmember, so once the motor's built she'll just slide into the engine bay.
front and rear window gaskets on the way so windscreen and rear window should go back soon.

Update on the Cuda, always liked the side decals with the ci. call outs.
I have seen these stripes done locally, but the dimensions and curves are always completely wrong and that just looks crap!
So I spent a few nights on Corel Draw tracing and re drawing some decals with the correct shape.
Got a set cut out from cheap gloss vinyl to test fit. It looks amazing and Im pretty damn chuffed with how it came out.
End of the month I will get them cut from proper 3M Matt finish auto vinyl.
Cheers
Etienne

It looks awesome on the car and you're right, the Matt finish will look nicer.
