Firts off thank you all for the comments. I appreciate them. :-) And Humvee, I need the grill the 73-77 style one. Heres an update,now this is a rough mock up of what I'm trying to do and some of the parts aren't "finessed" but its moving along nicely and I think the only thing that will be a p.i.t.a is the grill and the louvers in the hood.

I might have a set of louvers you could use for the hood, I'd have to check my parts boxes.

the dart gun is mounted on what looks like a drivershaft & the front turn signals are covered over with sheet metal.

That dart gun is made with a steering wheel u-joint, just like a driveshaft but smaller. I used the same idea for some of the real life weapons I mounted on vehicles!

Another update,kinda half assed painted it in order to see how it will look all red. I finished the rear diamond plate piece and started on the dart gun and the tow boom.Its too tall I know and I plan on bringing the boom down some. I also added the spot light and found some bucket seats lemme know what y'all think
