    Use scotch tape.
    Don't fool around with chemical methods if you are worried about the paint.

    I cannot speak for the sailors. 
    I kept my Marines so busy aboard ship no one had the time to think about that. Me included.

    Not being a submariner, I can only guess he's checking the missile hatches.

    We not only had Celebritys, we used them for 5 model years '84-'88. Keep in mind Chevrolet discontinued the 9C1 package on that car after the '87 model year. The last of our Celebritys were retail "EuroSport" versions made into radio cars. These had consoles and shifters between the bucket seats. Actually not bad for what and where we used them. A heavily populated urban are doesn't lend itself to big hot rod cars.  It was when the car began being used for everything, Traffic, Canine, SWAT etc. it became ridiculous.
    A district co worker was killed in a deliberate car crash September of '89. His Celebrity was rammed by a '77 Ford Galaxy at speed. The damage to the police car was so severe, our protests so loud, the bean counters began buying Caprices again.
    The link must have broken so here it is again.

    This was taken at Fleet Services. (Not my photo, used here for discussion only) Those are '90 Caprices in the background. That was the year we went back to all white cars for the fleet.

    Yup, Fleet Services insisted on using Armorall on everything inside the car. We wore those funky polyester blend uniform trousers by then. My son's Slip and Slide didn't work as well as those slick vinyl seats. 
    A lot of urban agencies used six cylinder cars. Those poor County guys were just miserable, especially in that hot humid Midwestern summer. I shouldn't laugh though, 1984 saw us adopting the Celebrity as the front line district radio car.

    We used "full size" cars as "lock ups" with a prisoner cage.
    I recall the Dip's seats being slabs of smooth vinyl, no pattern, no stitching, nothing.  
    Gutless is a polite way of expressing the car's performance. Still we laughed because the county cops had Diplomats with six cylinders.

    Beautifully done sir!
    I only drove one or two of those in my career. Interesting ours were white with blue interiors as well.
