Manny Placeres of CBC looks over the main badge glass cut into its basic shape, ready for image itching.

The LAPPL Insignia gets its internal LED lighting system installed by Rich Colton of CBC.

It takes at least 3 people to safely manage the LAPD main badge assembly - it weighs over 100 pounds with more than 100 stainless steel welded studs to bolt the pieces together. Artist Timothy Lampros leads this delicate operation.

North Hollywood Officers stop by A-1 Welding to get a first hand look at the Memorial Wall frame being fabricated. Jim Savatgy, the owner of A-1, is pictured to the right.

Raymond Reeves at Casters & Industrial Supply, Inc. of Sun Valley assembles one of the 38 ultra heavy duty casters. The Wall weighs in at over 13,000 pounds but thanks to Raymond's casters, it rolls effortlessly across a cement floor (almost effortlessly).

There are over 4,000 nuts & bolts used in the Wall. Stainless steel all the way up to the super duty Grade 8. Pictured here are the 230 bolts that affix the EOW frames to the Wall. Think of 20x's this many used in the project.

Peters, Robert Flores III, the manager - these guys work long hard days & nights to get the massive powder coating job done and done perfectly. More pictures of their fantastic work to follow soon.

Over 50 sheets of 5x10 stainless and 3/16th steel are used in the Memorial Wall fabrication and the Badges. Industrial Metal Supply in Sun Valley has been very helpful in taking care of all the steel needs for this project.
