    Hello everyone! Names Sam, I'm 17, and I like to restore old police cars and lightbars:D

    Currently I'm doing a 1997 Ford Crown Victoria California Highway Patrol car back to inservice specs. Since the CHP cars have a CHP specific Federal Signal Vision lightbar that I can't get ahold of, so I made one out of "smart pods" and FS "smart" Vector control boards. I relayed the functions and wired it all up myself with a little help from google and some people on a lightbar forum. It's taken me about 30 hours to get the bar to where it is now, and it's still not completely done lol
    I have some questions to ask about what I want to do for a control head, which will require small push switches, but I'm going to ask that in another thread.

    Here are some pics of my wiring job. Not the prettiest, but It's pretty organized for the limited space I had. Not bad though for having started with a bare frame:D

    My brother bought a few of the old light bars at a local police auction.
    My mom had a garage sale a couple weeks later, ....
    She got a visit from the local cops, demanding to know where my brother had
    obtained the light-bars.
    Keep your receipts, ....
