Hopefully the aftermarket will do FHP decals....that's the ones I remember from back in the day growing up in S. Florida...

CSP used a funky lightbar back in the day. I don't even remember the brand. Most everybody tried to forget it ... even when it was current. (Actually I believe it was a Whelen.)spaceout.gifspaceout.gif

That Colorado Mustang is neat...looks early, like an '85 or so. I remember back in the late '90s-early '00s some silver 4th gen Camaros in use in Colorado. Don't think I ever saw an AZ DPS Mustang, but I was only out here for a few visits from '83-97.

Ok, well that makes at least 4 kits I'll be needing now................................. :D Thanks Danno!

Anyone notice the hatchback CHP 'Stang next to the NHP car?

Danno, those were Whelan's attempt at non strobe bars. That's why thet stayed with strobes.....................

Interesting wheels on that white one. I've always liked the taillights and nose on the '85-86. Too bad my 1:1 '86 LX notchback had the weak 2.3 instead of the 5.0. Alas, it got totalled in '94, replaced by a Bronco.

So I imagine I'll reward Revell's excellent choice by going completely insane in the membrane and buying way more than I should. Even if the top of the rear window is a touch too low. This could get spendy.

Here is mine, I know I will break the bank with a few of these! Been waiting to build one and I almost purchased the resin version a few months ago, but now all I need to source now is the cowl hood, the SVO style steering wheel and the cobra rims that were on the SN-95 body cars that I know Revell made a few of, I cant wait! The first picture is when I first bought the car and the second is after I modded it a little. I had a over bore, tubular front clip with coil overs, Cervini 4" cowl, 3:73 gear, Steeda short shifter, and BBK long tubes. I wish I still had her, but I can have a model!

Wow..never seen that color before. Neat. One color I liked back the day that seemed pretty rare was a dark green that was available on the '85 or '86 LXes.

Got the local Napa to mix me some, was going to convert a few MPC I have, but looks like I'll just have to get this kit. John's '88 is in the Yellow Mustang Registry.

Here's a pic of my nephew's fully restored '86 Sage Green coupe, before and after the restoration. According to the Fox recognition guide, it's one of six coupes with the 5.0/auto.

A bit more eye candy for you Fox fans, courtesy again of my nephew, Chris. First, his completely restored '86 DPS coupe.

And his 24K mile original '85 Dominator

And his red '86 Dominator. You could say he takes his four-eye Foxes very seriously. His new toy is a '13 Gotta Have It Green Boss 302.

I know who DaSilva is, Nick. I have been playing with the FOX chassis almost as long as you have been alive. Around here (Ohio) has the same problem, Terminal Tin Worm, caused by salting the roads in winter. Yet, we usually have 4-5 FOXes in the shop/garage a week that don't belong to any of the 4 of us doing this gig. I myself have 3 of them, 2 being rust-free Florida cars and one being an Ohio rust-bucket. One of the Florida shells will be hacked up for its clean sheetmetal to save the Ohio car (as it is one of less than 4,000 built) To add to that, Dayton Performance is where Ed and one of his crew came to look at/measure/get info on (the owner, Mike) a Nitrous 10.5W car. That is the car that the second release of this kit will be based on (supposedly the decals are very close to Mikes paintjob. I set that meeting up.

The car you have pictured looks like it might just be a fun car (going by the 4-point strut tower brace) and is still mostly stock. My 91GT was completely stock when I bought it (when it had 270,000 original miles on it), my 88 LX Coupe was a 4-holer when I got it. It was killed in a traffic accident two weeks after I V8 swapped it (old lady in a Vickie).

Timing........Revell (Ed himself) had stated late April as the release time, so May isn't too far off from that.

Here's what I need...

On the bottom of the LX front bumper there are 4 "egg" shaped holes I need the dimensions of these holes.

Pictures would be great too!

I had the dimensions, but now I can't find them. I may have even thrown them out, as originally I was not going to extend the front bumper that far.

Well, now I would like to, but can't seem to get the dimensions quite right....
