Does anyone have Strobes in there car? Im thinking about getting hide aways for the headlights and taillights, a Led bar to put towards the top of the windshild and maybe a Led ground effect kit on. All in blue. This is for good reason, im in the fire department and want a cool way to be known if im going to a call. The thing i want is it not to be known that i have them intill i turn them on. Checking ebay, i found this bar thats small enough that i think it will fit under the molding on the ceiling of the car. Wanted to know if anyone had any thoughts or knowledge of this idea.

The bar i was looking at is here:

A buddy of mine had his 00 Si done up... it was one hell of a mess of wires, but looked pretty cool. He had a bunch of different styles of lights throughout the car, ranging from headlight strobes to windshield lights.

In some states, such as NY, volunteer firefighters are only allowed one blue light on their vehicle. I checked the law for CT, and it seems there is no limit on the number of blue lights you can have. I still think you may be going overboard with it though...

You'll probably have to drill the headlight housings to install strobes. If you're comfortable with that, go for it. I don't know how effective they'll be at night though, when your headlights are on. As for the taillights, unless you put them in the reverse light areas, or have altezzas, you won't get a blue light because of the red plastic. And again with the drilling.

The led tube for the windshield could work. I've seen them mounted on the back of the mirror with velcro or double-sided tape. They're visible and don't require any permanent modifications. You might get glare off the glass.

The ground effects may not be visible during the day, since they're hidden from direct line of sight.

How about one of these?


:lol:

THere's no limit for CT, and you can have any color flashing in the rear, so i could put it in anywhere on the taillights. About the glare of the windsheild, i was thinking that the moldings would stop most of that. If not i might make a fiberglass housing for them.

Your only allow to have them on going to a call. If your caught with them any other time, you get you permit pulled and could be fined.

Here's a pic of my old car. If you look close, you can see the blue lights in the bumper.
