I just spent the last 5 1/2 hours wet sanding the biggest goddamn car I've ever sanded by hand. I hate to buff this car and make it shinier but the more than factory orange peel bugged the hell out of me. I'll buff some or most or all of it tomorrow, I'll have to go to the dealership in the morning and get my buffer.
If I could upload pics I have close up of it, I actually made a template of a Mount Prospect shaped star and painted that on first. The P1's I went with the coloring and look from in front of Mrs. Toronto (Torentino's) house and the "we're out of gas" scenes.

You can see the similarities of the P1's in these pics. I think my star is a bit too high but I can live with that. I have to order the other stencils, these I made but the others would be too complicated to cut out by hand and make look good. I have 2 correct S6 spotlights, 1 mystery mounting bracket and one for a modern crown vic, I think I'll borrow the NOS mount and mounting stencil for my Gran Fury, drill the hole in the correct spot, and then grind the mystery bracket to the right angle to fit. I just need to get a 1/2" drill bit. I also have some original used CHP push bar rubber, I have to get some steel and start on the push bar.
