My new (old) CVPI Take-home..

Well due to budget cuts and reassignments I had to give up my 2008 CVPI, viewtopic.php?f=39&t=463 for this 2005 CVPI. This car has a lot of the same equipment that my 08 did with the exceptions of some of the different lighting and computer equipment. I left a lot of my own equipment that was in my 08 due to a good friend getting the car and letting him use it.


Equipment:


Code 3 RX2700


Whelen CPS690 (strobes in corners and reverse lights)


2 Whelen TIR3s in rear


Rear Spoiler w/ Red/Blue LEDs


Whelen Headlight flasher


LX4 Red/Blue Grill lights


Rear prisoner screens


Kustom camera system


Dual Stalker radar


etc..

Dude, that 05 is in better condition than some "fresh off the line" cars around here..


How the heck did you manage that?

Who did you piss off to have to give up your 2008 and move back to a 2005. Looks good, but i'd be pissed.

This car is actually in immaculate condition for being on 05, my friend that took my 08 took VERY good care of his car. I have been temporarily re-assigned from the road patrol to an administrative position and they wanted to keep the newer vehicles on the road patrol, therefore my friend and i traded cars. whenever they put me back on the road, i get my 08 back!

So who have you shot to be "temporarily reassigned" :D ...The car still looks good. How does the rear spoiler light work for you?

Does the trunk lid badge actually say "Sheriff Interceptor"? I've never seen one before.


You must be secure in your masculinity - a Swiffer in your battle bag? Some things you just can't let the civilians see..... ;)


Nice standoff on the shotgun :cool:

The spoiler is actually really neat, the leds in it are split red/blue, it isnt used as a brake light. I got the sheriff interceptor lid badge off of the board here, and yes that is a swiffer in my battle bag, for all intents and purposes it is usually in the glove box! i will get a video up sometime today of the rear spoiler in action.

Well, it is weird on a cop car, and in my opinion does not sit well with the TIR3 on the deck.


Makes it look like a tuned-up Import... No offence... ;o)

In all seriousness, do you have enough elbow room with the 30 rd mag in the AR? It may be the perspective, but it looks like it sticks out pretty far.


Lately, I seem to be leaning towards keeping a 20 in the carbine to keep it as trim as possible, and using 30s as reloads.

It is funny that you mention that, I have been pondering doing the same thing and putting a 20rd mag in there. My elbow room, especially I have noticed in this car is tight as opposed to my 08. I keep a shoulder sling w/ 6 30rd mags on it in the trunk in case the shit hits the fan, but I will be converting over to a 20rd mag.

This video was taken a few years ago when the spoiler was installed. The car at the time had an LEDx2100 on it, not the RX2700 and didnt have the strobes in the reverse lights. But you can get the idea what it looks like..

What happened to those BADD ASS 400s!!


they were left in my 08, a good friend of mine is driving it and i just went ahead and left em in there. i miss those things a lot, they were bad ass, between those and the datalux computer those are what i miss the most from my 08! when i look at the grill on this thing it almost looks as if nothing is in there as those 400s took up some real estate behind that grill.

being from the Army the 1st thing I noticed was your weapon is not on SAFE.


hmmm ya know, you are absolutely right. i just went out and checked it and sure enough the safety was in the FIRE position. i can't exactly say how i let that one slide by me, other than i am more embarrassed about that than i am the swiffer in my bag :oops: .

Couldn't you just turn the gun mount, so the magazine points toward the passenger side? Or won't it open properly in that position?
