Just thought you guys might like to see how the flexible LED strips compare to commercial emergency lighting. The strips under the tailgate are the 19" strips stacked 3 rows high. Red on the left and Blue on the right. The video doesn't capture the flash patterns correctly and misses most of the strobe flashes, but you'll get the idea.

Thanks for the compliments. I don't know if it would be all that impressive through tinted windows. (What percent tint are we talking about?) Sure, they're bright for Gen1, but they are still only Gen1. If i were going to do something through tint and expect it to punch through, I'd go for at least two rows of the Superflux LEDs. Three rows if you can fit it into your plans. That would give you a bigger foot-print which I think is just as important as the brightness.

Wow. Very cool man. That is trippy. I don't think anyone could ever pull off the line "I didn't see you following me" anymore with THAT! Holy Chit!

NOICE!

9C1, exactly what type of lights are you looking for? Dash, deck, grill, LED, strobe, etc... Depending on what you need I might be able to steer you in the right direction.

thesull, here's a few more pictures of the install. A strobe install is pretty straight forward. Sometimes it can be tricky getting headlight housings out depending on the vehicle. On some cars, you have to drop the front bumper. And the new 'composite' style headlights don't lend themselves well to strobes since you can't get the tube inside the reflector. By far the hardest part of strobes is routing the cables. They're NOT tiny. Two bundles the size of garden hoses can be challenging to get from A to B.

You might like the results, but you definitely don't wanna know about the labor involved! I have hundreds of hours into this thing. Oh, and pardon the dirty interior, it is a truck after all.

I have a few more pics in the gallery at photobucket if you'd like to help yourselves to a look-see. If there's anything else you want to get a good look at, just let me know and I'll get some pics of it.

The LED flasher is in the compartment with the strobe power supplies. It's the matchbox sized thing on the rear wall between the two strobe packs. It's a soundoff Signal model #ETFFC02LED.

ok, NOW im in love!

random question, is there a CB i can get that will work with my whelen siren so i only have to have 1 mic, instead of the collection you have? i have a whelen 295SL100 siren.

as for cheap parts how about one of those flashers you have, and either 2 whelen strobe tubes, or a csp660 + 8 strobe tubes... used is fine as long as it will work... and red or white for the strobes.

The ShoMe LED flasher works well too, with a few different "strobe" options. Only $25.00.

Nice work hoot.

orangesuburban, the problem with that is with the CB, not your siren (although I didn't look at the manual for your siren so I can't be sure on that either). Most professional series mobile radios have some sort of pinouts so you can jack the audio in/out and activate the PTT remotely. I've never seen a CB with those features. What's wrong with more mic's??? icon_rolleyes.gif

radioflyer, from the top down: Motorola CDM1250 UHF, Motorola CDM1250 VHF, Uniden BC796D Trunking Scanner, Federal Signal SmartSiren SS2000 (also controls emergency lighting), Carling Switches (for off-road lights), Dashcam DVR, Icom IC208H Dual-band Ham, Uniden Pro520XL CB.
