Lookin real good Nick, But if memory serves correctly, in the movie there was a little bit of white (or off white) in the interior. I could be wrong, it's been a while since I've seen the movie. I do know however that the very top trim of the door panels was chrome or aluminum (can't remember which). Just tryin to help out. Can't wait to see it done.

Thanks, and I'll have to double check that. :)

Hey Nick, can I get in on this build with this car?

It's the ZZ Top Eliminator car from the '80's. I know it wasn't in a show or movie per say, but it WAS on MTV every 90 minutes back in the day! That is, back when they actually showed music videos! :lol: Let me know what you think, and thanks alot! Ed

Alright, I'm going to get into this build! I recently picked up the "reissued" Revell Jeep CJ-7 Renegade kit, and just looked through the Internet Movie-Car Database for an idea. I've decided to build Demi Moore's Jeep from St. Elmo's Fire, but of course only have one picture to go off of.

When I go home for winter break, I'll be able to actually watch the movie again and see if I can see any more details. But, for now (this weekend actually), I'll take care of the chassis parts that aren't seen during the movie.

I've been working on the Bronco from "240-Robert" for quite some time. Might be just the venue to show it off when it's done!

Posted Image

From Wikipedia:

The series chronicled the missions of "240-Robert," a specialized unit (three young deputies utilizing a four-wheel drive SUV and a helicopter) of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Emergency Services Detail. Most of the assignments were sea/air/land search and rescue operations in their extensive (over 4,000 square miles) jurisdiction. The show's creator was Rick Rosner (himself an LASD reserve deputy), who created the hit CHiPs two years earlier for NBC.

The vehicle used at that time was a 1979 Ford Bronco, while the helicopter was a Hughes (later McDonnell-Douglas, now Boeing) Model HA-500C (similar in design to the current MD 500).

The series was based on real life cases encountered by the LASD's Emergency Services Detail. The real life ESD is actually headquartered in East Los Angeles. Rick Rosner took artistic liberty and portrayed the headquarters as a "beach-side" station. The actual filming location was at a State of California ranger station located at Sycamore Cove in Ventura County, CA.

Cast

* Deputy Theodore Roosevelt "Trap" Applegate III (John Bennett Perry).
* Deputy Dwayne "Thib" Thibideaux (Mark Harmon, episodes 1-13).
* Deputy Morgan Wainwright (Joanna Cassidy, episodes 1-13), the unit's helicopter pilot.

All you do is take the code that you posted, and put it into the image tags. (in the reply screen, it's the picture below "fonts" with the sunset).
