Im still waiting decals for trunk and hood, but since i have decals for both sides i wanted to put them on. I really like these decals. They are thin but there was no afraid to broke them, even i did little bit modified them.

Passingers side in place and drivers side in the works.

I found this Chevy on my junk yard, and I'll restore this. I bought about two years ago.

Good looking stuff here!

The Dodge is on hold while I finish the Caprice and start another tank. ;)

I'm looking through the spares for a light bar for this. The second CHP Dodge will be a slick top so I will need some stuff for it too. Anybody got any spare spotlights from a Lindbergh '96 Crown Vic? I need some and wanted to make resin copies, but I cannot find any in my spares. The spot lights in the Dodge kit suck.

Speaking of the Dodge Charger, something occurred that I am wondering is the norm. Upon putting the interior in, and placing the chassis on, I noticed some fit issues. They were easily resolved until I began adding the underhood details. The best I can figure is the body is out of wack by not quite 1/16 inch.

It appears my kits body is short on the left side by that amount. NOTHING fit under the hood on the left (driver's) side. I had to ditch the hood hinges, they interferred with the shock tower on the left side. When I added the washer bottle the hood was again no longer level on the left side. I removed the washer bottle and shaved the bottom down. I snipped off the mounting pin and put it back. Now the hood fits level. :blink:

Thing is all the underhood details on the left side are too close together. This keeps the hood from closing. You can tell the body's not quite square with the hood on. WTF?

Your thoughts people?

WOW i got my first set ever of Bill Bozo decals! Now i know why you guys like them. I was thinking when i ordered them that i have decals for 2 cop cars, but there is full decals for 4 cop cars!! and lots of extra decals what i can use for future builds. Now im thinking some "what if" project. What about NYPD Highway Patrol car Dodge Challenger`09??

Gotta thank you guys for bringing those decals to my knowledge in this great CBP. We have lots of great builds in progress at here.

Janne :D

Janne it could have just been my kit, but wow what a bummer. Watch the left (driver's) side of the engine bay. Everything added onto the fender well is compressed front to back and it definately makes a difference. The hood hinges fit exactly in a space engineered between the shock tower and wiper bottle. That little bit of space made all the difference.

Bozo decals are the bomb! :)

Here's another example of Bozo decals. This is an AMT concept Camaro dressed out as a phantom Colorado State Patrol interceptor.

Better hoard those decals, he got a cease & desist from the State Patrol over those, and you can't get them anymore.

What a bunch of narrow-minded bullpuppy. I just don't get the thought pattern there ... and of course CSP is not the first agency to do that ... I just don't get how 1/25 or 1/18 decals threaten the agency. Guess they need to cloak all their vehicles with stealth stuff so no "unauthorized" photos can be taken ... etc., etc.

On to other agency builds, then!

Oh yeah, the LAPD too went bugnutts and Chimneyville et al had to stop printing the little "To Protect and Serve" logos as well as that ancient city emblem. Ho Hum, real dumb. :P

Colorado has a sharp looking car, too bad, we'll all stick to the CHP!

A guy I know runs the website copcar.com. He darn near got arrested after asking to take pics for his site. Seems a certain hoity toity PD in Kansas values their security. Like anyone knows they are there? :blink:
