Going to original colors - black vinyl top with black and white houndstooth cloth and vinyl seats, FC7 for the body and white longitudinal RT stripes. New fuel line clips from Inline Tube are on the way for the 73 as well as a rust free trunk lid courtesy of ebay. She's been on jack stands in my driveway since August (LAST August) due to water in the gas tank - seeing JB Weld on the tank when you remove it is so not a good sign Been gathering parts; some ordered new, some from ebay, some from folks on this site. Ya's know who you are and i really appreciate it . Next week i'll be wire wheeling the underside and coating it before the new fuel system goes on, then new brakes and wheel bearings.

It was originally Y1 Lemon Twist and that's what it will be when I'm done. Tonight I was looking at a bit of bodywork I did over the weekend and my daughter said "Dad, I can't wait 'till it's yellow!" Tell me about it...

Transamcuda.com ~ 70 AAR Cuda Tor-Red 4 speed. 47,000 original miles. Bought off original owner. Motors & tranny done. Now if I could find a bodyman who will finish what he starts!!!!

Kellyscuda ~ 1974 cuda....missing most of the interior but the seats are there....working hard on the drive train ,just finished putting in a 69 440

Don ~ As of right now I am in the process of removing 3 coats of paint from my 71 challenger RT. I plan to roll it outside tomorrow (5-15-05) and take some pictures that I'll post on the board. When finished it will be painted either bright orange or bronze metalic. I haven't decided yet.

Todd383 ~ I got a 383 70 R/T chally, that is a rotissorie resto, it is originally hemi orange, black top black bumble bee , and black treatment on hood , body work is completd , just alot of sanding and blocking. motor is not stock, just wanted something different. hopefully another year might be done.
