    Looks awesome! Radio and shotgun are spot on.

    As a retired Florida deputy and now Iowa firefighter, I too could tell story upon story. Surprisingly, up here, we do get most folks to move over with out much trouble. In Florida, short of using the PIT maneuver, they'd stay put. Very aggravating.

    Oh, and we were 10-18 for a full code.

    The bad guys definitely knew we were coming...

    Oh, how I'd hate to pay the bill to fill those tanks. Looks really good.

    I built the "High Roller" version a few years ago. Actually turned out to be a decent kit for the age.

    Fantastic job. Kudos on the interior and completely agree on the floor mats idea.

    Two things I will offer-

    The Y88 "Gold Special Edition" only came with the Fisher t-tops (the large ones) instead of the leaky Hurst Hatches.

    It also was available with the 15x7 rims you have pictured, but more than likely came with the 15x8 offered with the WS6 package.

    Here is a fantastic site with some good pics. (I didn't even know about the different colored steering columns or tail lights until I found it!)

    I built one of theses back when they first came out. I was a deputy sheriff in Polk County, Florida (Lakeland) and we had a division of Stepp's there. I was able to sit in the actual "Can Do," but the pictures I took did not come out very well. I did score a copy of their calendar that had a really nice shot of the truck. I'm in the middle of a move right now, but if I run across it, I'll be happy to send it to you.

    Great bonding time and helps to teach patience. Pic is my (at the time) 14 year old building a Dodge Charger police car.

    I had not seen that, but it'd look good on my shelf...

    Nice job! Seen one or two of those in my day (from the front seat!)

    Super job on the weathering! I agree though that the wheel-wells need to be hit... As for the seat, eh, when you're jeepin', everything gets muddy. I've come home with more mud inside than out.

    Try using a nasal sprayer with some thinned paint on a piece of scrap. I did it on a 4x4 I'm doing and was tickled with the results.
  14. Murphy's Law added a post in a topic The Great American Truck Race   

    Yup. This race took place the year following the filming of SATB 2. The do show footage of Kenny "Special 'K'" Farmer's bad wreck that was used in the movie.

    Don't ask me how I came across that...
