I believe they are in the cuda street machine kit with the flat hood. I had a set i used on a panther pink convertible but someone in my club gave me them.

Looking great so far.

Ditto on the white billboards, they look awesome on purple.

The hood came in from Lex's scale modeling and it looks good, it was very thick so i had to do alot of sanding just to get it to this point and i still have alot of sanding and fine tuning to get it to sit right but i should be fine i think the hood scales out to about a 6 or 7 inch cowl? anyways heres the pics

Try Keith Marks for the '71 white billboard decals. He'll be your best source.

may I suggest cutting out the grille too.  I did it on my panther pink convertible. I just used some mesh from a tamiya kit in behind and it looked pretty good. As for keith marks,  I just talked to him this morning so he is around his computer to set u up with some decals

Thank you! i really appreciate the comments!! as for the white billboards im not shure what im going to do being that im only 14 and its winter time i dont have any yard work money coming in so money is a bit tight for me so i think ill probably stay with the kit black billboards. Eelco, your cuda looks sweet i like the pink alot!

heres some pregress, worked on the interior a bit getting it to fit the tubs and finished some body work in the front with getting the huge seam completely filled

14!?!?!?! You're the man! I don't know if that's common knowledge around here since I'm "new" but I honestly wouldn't have guessed your age based on this work. Beautiful stuff. Glad to see the hobby has a bright future.
