Hey Alan,
That is awesome, thank you.  :thumbsup:

It would be a natural for the 1970 Dealership display at Carlisle next year if you can get it done in time?

Since most folks have never even seen one, it would be a great car to showcase. I can ask.  ;)

As far as the dash decal goes, personally I would not put it back since it was an aftermarket deal.

But where the decal used to be on the switch panel left a faded mark. Tropical cats just scanned the book for me and the decal. It is a piece of the cars history I thought. So it doesnt matter?   I still got the emission decal that came on the fenderwell , but the antifreeze sticker is gone now. I noticed factory decals had a date written on them by had, that is why I haven't bought a repop anti freeze decal.  Oh, I have been searching for the 4 speed 22 inch sb radiator. I only have a factory 22 inch bb 4 spd radiator. I think its a 954 or something like that.

I know mine wont be exactly the way it came off of the assembly line but it will be the way I want it.  Most of the changes I am making could have been on it anyways.  I just want it to look and drive really good.  It may be the last Barracuda I can ever get not sure but it sure seems that way.  I want it to last for the rest of my life and then maybe pass it on to one of the kids or something.  I hope to get started on my car soon very soon. 
Got a pretty good start on my M46 optioned Barracuda restoration but now it is on hold till I can gather more funds.  Still need a few parts for it.  SIU Graduate 75 AAS Automotive Tech, 94 BS Advanced Tech Studies, 1997 MSED Workforce Education and Development

Mine will be as original as possible.  Already getting small parts to take it back.

I am going to keep it as much as possible like it would have come off the assembly line or from the dealer.  But I am adding a few things to make it for me.   :bigsmile:
