Florida Highway Patrol Mustang.

  • 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:

  • Decals are on & antenna's added.

  • Oh yeah!

    Looking great!

  • Excellent looking build...................Slusher

  • 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.

  • where's the pics?

  • which beige did you use?

  • My Bad did some cleaning up and accidently removed the pics. They are back up now. The colors are Krylon Satin almond & krylon gloss black.

  • Excellent build; very well done!

    On the bench:  MPC '67 Pontiac GTO, MPC '67 Dodge Charger fastback, AMT '69 GTX and a rebuild project of a '74 Corvette roadster.

  • That is very very good!

    I love that car.
