My 2016 Interceptor

Better late than never! I bought my 2016 Interceptor Utility back in April and I finally have time to finish my write up about it. I ordered it in mid-January with an ETA of early April. Conrail managed to lose it once it was unloaded from the train in New Jersey but I finally got my hands on it on April 22nd.

As it looked the day I picked it up...

The following weekend, with the help of a good friend, I began installing all of the extras. I started off with a Setina push bumper.
