Whelen 90h rotators with fluted filters. Pics and Video. Now in a lightbar...
So whelen offered the 80/90 series rotators with both non-optic and fluted filters. Here is the set of NOS (or near) 90h rotators with fluted filters I just over paid for... I have never seen a set before.

Could those have been designed specifically for stationary lights?We the willing, led by the unknowing; have been doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have been doing so much for so long with so little; we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

The two types of filters weren't usually mixed and matched... people usually ordered a bar all one style (again usually non fluted)... The only fluted ones I have ever seen before were amber and populated an entire bar.... there were 2 on each rotator, so no clear side on each rotator. The bar had STT and work lights, so that's the reason for the clear outer dome....
Here is the 1980 90h catalog description.
"When the outer dome is specified clear, colored spreader lens covers or non-spreader type are available for rotating reflectors and for stationary reflectors. All safety colors are available."
In typical old Whelen catalog fashion, they title it "Spreader Lens" and show the non spreader type. They often did this with strobe and halogen MAX beams and mixed rotator styles in advatedge descriptions and pics in the catalogs in the 80s and 90s....

While we are talking filters... whelen also offered two different takes on a colored internal filter for the 8000 series. Unlike the 90/80h, these two filters were not offered at the same time. The top one was the first style, the bottom the second style. After that the next two internal optics were offered in clear only.
