How Grown Men Decorate Their Jeeps

I have finished most of my hardware upgrades for my Jeep. Oh I still need some bigger tires, a few more chrome do-dads and what-nots, but for the time being I am doing some cosmetic upgrades.

I am sticking with a beach theme for now of Shore Patrol.

As I understand it, the Shore Patrol (pictured below) was a group of unregulated Navy men and MP’s that operated mainly in US Navy ports to pick up drunk sailors during WW II. They were armed only with night sticks and made sure sailors were back on the ship before curfew.

I had this decal made (top picture) and applied it on Saturday along with an STX (St Croix) dive sticker. I think it looks quite official. Gigi was afraid I would get stopped impersonating a military officer.

Cedie and I went for a Sunday ride looking for some shores to patrol. We mostly saw pond shores, and got a lot of waves from Jeep fans.

This other picture (left) is of Michaels Jeep in St Croix. Michael is a bartender at the Deep End Bar and not my friend Michael that I refer to frequently.

He has decorated his Jeep with countless do-dads glued to his dash board and instrument panel. He said people leave stuff on his seat now to add to the collection.
