Florida Highway Patrol Mustang.
Posted by kymdlr on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 9:49 PM

Sgtwg's mustangs inspired me to open my kit which i planned on being a pro street car at first. I decided a police car would be a better idea. Back when these car's first came out Florida Highway Patrol had the 2nd highest number of them behind CHP. I did a bit of research Here:  http://www.sspmustang.org/restoration/Restoration%20Guide%20for%20FHP%20SSP%20Mustangs.htm#_Toc168645644

Finished interior: I detailed the kit radio stack and added a radar unit to the dash. I also added a rotator dash light since it was the 90's.  FHP commonly added strobes to the rear deck so I put some in as well.

Nice job, luv the gumball on the dash!  I'm suprised you didn't do a KSP version....I did a ride-along in one back in the day.

Question....what greys did you use on the radar display?

KSP's version was too plain for me. Now their new chargers are sharp. Heres where we are now:

Most of the 90's Mustangs used by FHP used a JetSonic brand lightbar. A few had the Federal Signal Vector, which FHP still uses today on their cars that are not equipped with LED lightbars. Since adding the Vector, this model is done.
