Got some more work done on "Policia"

Well, we got ahold of some more paint yesterday, so, more painting!!! The beast is coming along nicely! We will also get the roof painted black soon and maybe the hood.

The "580" on the back is the tail number of the helicopter I was flying the day I took the truck mechanics that work on the van for a ride. So, as a tribute, they put "580" on as our vans tail number/emergency phone number. Nice!

Today one of the guys ordered 36 feet of 20% limo tint for it (yeah, its got a LOT of windows!). We should have a awesome musical horn/pa system on order shortly http://www.cogapa.com/ordering.htm
We may have a siren controller, some subwoofers, and an amp coming over soon, and we are looking for some tubing to make sidepipes for it! Oh yeah, no muffler and side pipes! Thats the plan!

Sorry about the bad pictures. The sun had just set, and the flash shows all the dust in the air over here. Pictures at night dont work out well.

Soon, the bars will be on the windows, the roof will be black, and hopefully we will have more red lights on the inside. We also may end up with a old police light bar from the states. One of our guys used to work for his home town police. We'll see if that pans out.

Our Battalion Commander does not have a very good sense of humor though. So we are fully expecting him to make us paint over the "Policia" on the van. I came up with a new name for it though if that happens. SWAT. Standard Warlord Aircrew Transport.

We can still use any parts, gizmos, gadgets or whatever for it if ya'll have some cool junk laying around!

LOL, well, I can assure you that since it is 100+ degrees all day long... its not snow! But thats ok with me. I'll take 100 all day instead of 10 all day! I hate the cold!

Yeah, when I was in Saudi, same thing with the flash. But anyways, not about me right now. Great work, you certainly do find creative ways to stay occupied over there. Look forward to your next project as always.

Hey guys, we have a new "toy" on the way over here for the "Policia" van! http://www.cogapa.com/ has offered to send us one of their musical horn systems! Not only that, but they also make another cool device, the iChime electronic recordable doorbell!!! THAT should be fun! http://ichime.com/ Im quite sure we can find a way to have some fun with this thing at our office.

I'd like to thank Jack Millerick for his generosity and for sending over our new electronic gadgets! Check them out guys at the websites I posted. Help support the guys who help support us!
