Eagle hood decal
« on: August 13, 2011, 05:51:28 PM »
I'm just toying with the idea of putting a decal of an Eagle on the hood. I'm typically conservative when it comes to body mods. I don't even like bumper stickers. However, I thought it might be different to put a decal similar to the Transam or Jeep Golden Eagle. I would want something simple in design that would look like it have come on the car from the factory. Maybe a crest of some sort. Here are a few ideas I found  surfing the web:
The Eagle head could be an option.




I'm really liking a Native American theme. Especially since they have some red and blue along with my white car would be perfect.



Now if some talented member had an idea I'd like to see it.

Thanks. If I were to do it, a big if, it would just be on the power bulge portion of the hood.

Yea, its a big step to put something like that on the hood.  Thats where it helps to either have a spare Eagle to try out those kind of things, or at least a spare hood!  You could change your hood, depending on your mood that day.

I like the same one Gill likes also.

I don't know about the Haida art.  I'm not apposed to it, but I wouldn't put it on a car. 

I'm not sure I like the idea about the decal.  I mean to me, it seems like a similar thing to a firebird.  But that's just my opinion.

I no longer have an AMC Eagle, but I am still a fan.

After our fiasco with the Toyota Corolla I got for my wife I believe I am done with Japanese vehicles.

Dude you are preaching to a choir member that is close to becoming an AMC Minister if you know what I mean.
