The decision to shave them was made as I tackled more issues with the car during the disassembly.  Between rust and body damage, I decided to clone it to a 70 look.  I'm happy with it. The motor is on it's way to the machine shop this week.  I would probably have more done by now but the heat here in NC has been pretty bad.

Paint looks killer.   :2thumbs:  Seems like the heat is everywhere this year!  It's also keeping me from making a lot of progress on my 'Cuda.  Been in the mid to hi 90s in Utah all July.  Can't wait to see what Aug brings. Ugh :22yikes:
1970 Plymouth 'Cuda.  Matching numbers 440 U Code, 4 speed pistol grip, Rallye dash, AM 8 Track, Shaker hood, 15 inch rallye wheels, Dana 60 4.10, Super Track Pak.  One of 134 - 440 "U" coupes codes built in 1970 and one of 100 - 440 Super Track Paks built in 1970.

"usraptr" = United States raptor - bird of prey = United States Bald Eagle.  FYI, somebody else thought of it first so I had to drop the "O" in raptor.

I'm hoping someone can lead me in the right direction.  I want to do a custom stripe on my car.  I saw one on the net on a drawing that I liked.  Sent it to Phoenix Graphix and they said they can't do it.  Does anyone know of a company I can get in touch with to create one?  Last option is the AAR stripe and put a different graphic on the end.
