I couldn't find that color tan on the SF website, is it the same as Tennessee's? I have struggled with that question forever, they look the same to me....

Jeff,

     Email Jameston to see if he has more paint or see if the Tennessees cream matches Floridas cream.The bottle has Florida H.P. Cream on it.

Good Luck!

John

If nothing else Model Master enamel "Ivory" is a good match. Be forewarned the spray can Ivory takes forever to dry even for an enamel. I will AB mine cut with laquer thinner to speed up the process a bit.

Looking good so far. I've thought about building the same thing being as I also live in Florida. I remember these running around on the interstate years ago. Never did get caught by one, however the FHP Camaro SS did get me once  :)

Can't wait to see how this one turns out!

I like the concept, John. I'm close to you in Naples and have seen these on the road.  Too bad you couldn't have placed the body on the hood of Trooper car for your photos!
