Also, the Super Cuda was and is a Super Stock Cuda not a funny car.

Thanks for the info ,guys. The bottom picture from hondo shows the decals that I am after. There was a built super cuda funny car like this on E-Bay a few weeks ago and the seller credited Bad Habit Motorsports with these decals.

Oops, my bad! I spoke out of turn. I completely forgot about this car and the fact that Keven did a set of these decals. Next time I will make sure that I have my facts straight before chiming in.
It's a shame that Bad Habit is out of business. He had many good, rare, hard to find subjects done up in decals. I was also helping him with some resin projects. Maybe he will regroup and be back at it somewhere down the road.

Do you know what type of printer he was using? I don't think it was an Alps and his quality didn't look like a short run screen printer.

No problem at all 1320Wayne. Smile

These older funny cars are treasured memories for me.
I really liked the "way it was" back then.............when the cars and drivers had
more persona about them.............(sorry John Force).

I do wish there were more of the decals available for some of the older
funny cars.

Those were the days............

His decals were done with a laser cut printer. I'm not sure what that means but he was not going to be in trouble like everyone with Alps printers.

 This thread has seemingly been long dead; but I'm new here. So anyway:      Kevin is a great guy!  He did decals for my Shirl Greer "Tension" Dodge project when I was really between a rock and a hard place! I was ready to decal my project, and there was none available. Keven stepped up BIGTIME with a great set of vinyl stick-on prototype decals and then a proper set of standard waterslide decals. Keven nailed all of the artwork and suppIied me with ACCURATE decals that I was badly in need of. I met Keven at NNL East quite a few years back which was where he gave me the decals in-person and we had a great conversation about old drag stuff.

I have bought a few things from Keven since then on ebay, but we have lost touch as of recently. I hope he is doing well. MCW now sells decals for Shirl Greer's "Tension" Dodge (LONG after Keven and I did the originals), but I don't care for the MCW resin or decals. The couple decals they do that I wanted to buy; they would not sell seperately; they required that I pay full price for the whole resin transkit even if all I wanted was the decals.  I can do the bodywork by myself; I don't need or even like their bodies. So they get ZERO $$$$$ from me. I have enough projects going to keep me busy 'till I'm 500yrs old. I don't NEED anything from MCW if they want to have that attitude.

Saw your post looking for decals for the SuperCuda F/C, looked down the list of other peoples replies & nobody had this, I remember seeing decals for this car & went & checked before I posted, Slixx carries decals to make Larry Reyes late 60's SuperCuda F/C, Part # 7113/SCFC2, it's on the 1st page of the funny car section.

Same here, love the older F/C's, as I posted about the SuperCuda decals, Slixx has a lot of decals for the older (60's-70's) F/C's. They have decals for Candies & Hughes cars(the red '68 cuda, blue '69 & the '70 &'71 cudas), Don Schumachers '70-'74 Stardust cars, Shirl Greers Chained Lighting Mustang 2 & quite a few others.

Nice build, like the red paint, the Travlin' Javalin next to it looks good too.
