    sdfd504: Maybe I'm just an old dog and a traditionalist, but the 1984 is a bit too loud for my tastes. We stick with the run of the mill boring stuff...


    Although, I do like old Bugs on it...

    Wear it with pride sir...

    Thanks and the reason it looks so bright is that it just got refinished with a new coat of paint after my promotion lol It used to be a dull black and I can't wait to catch a fire to get it smoked up again lol

    And thanks for the compliment on the bugs. It has a story behind him being on there but that might be for another day. hah

    Hahaha ok. Well the reasoning behind the bugs being on the front is I was passed up for promotion several times due to me and the captain not being on very good terms due to some past things and he has the say so on who gets promoted at the station. After his two picks didn't pan out too well at all he finally decide to promote me since I was the most qualified in the company but not until I did a few things on his list which were just bs things really. He kept saying that he was dangling the carrot in front of me and if I wanted the promotion I would have to get the carrot. So since I'm a smart a$.$. I decided to get Bob Stella to pain me a new LT font with bugs bunny eating a carrot. It p.i.$.$.ed my captain off and made the rest of the department laugh. Mission accomplished in my book. Haha

    Yes he does amazing work. This is my third shield from him so far and I get compliments just about every time we run a wreck or fire with a different company. They hold up great and show off your pride in your department well.

    I took this old FDNY leather and cleaned it up and gave it a fresh coat of paint.
