When do we see the finished product? 馃槉

A few more weekends. Rest of front end should go on this weekend, then Brad will have to finish the lights and electronics inside. Haven't decided on outside hwy patrol graphics or unmarked yet, depends on if he wants to drive it around any. Prob do unmarked and the hwy patrol silver on the roof. A few ex hwy patrol LEO's have been asking about when we will be done as they drove a SSP during their time in law enforcement here.

More work today on the SSP. Got the front end on and hood. Worked on rebuilding the rear brakes. The pas side brake drum was frozen on, drum had a wear lip inside that had the shoe captured. We beat and beat on it, crow bar, hammer, cuss, 1 hour later I beat it into submission while Brad crow bar the poop out of it. Also he has been working during the week on the electronics. He has the blues and strobes working. I took a vid of them flashing and will upload. Looks fantastic. Here some other pics of today:
