    I wake up and see this today

    That'd definitely be a good neighborhood to not be in. You need to sandbag the interior of your house, say, halfway up the windows.

    Cheap and Easy was to mount a light to your headliner....

    Friends, be aware coat hangers come in different grades, from flimsy to heavy duty. If you really wanted to go heavy duty, a length of uncoated welding road would work, but you might have to overlap two sticks to get enough length.

    How many light bars do you have in your collection?

    Is there a way of searching Face Book Market like feeBay, or is it pretty much what you accidentally find?

    Crown Rick Auto

    I've seen some apparently good serviceable stuff he has found on/in the cars. Stuff the taxpayers paid good money for, that the user of the car was too lazy to thoroughly look for before turning the car in and will have to be replaced at taxpayer expense. No wonder the whole state is going bankrupt.

    1st generation SVP-1168 Pancake comparison

    I agree. Don't understand why Star took a product that had good proformance and reputation, then ruined it by changing the design. Redesign and changing the tooling costs money. Better to have left well enough alone and charged a little more. Putting the motor on the base and trimming the...

    Unity / Whelen RV26 (MSP led beacon)

    If you knew exactly how much current the light draws when all diodes are activated, and the number of diodes, you should be able to come close to their wattage. You'd need to allow for a little consumption by the flasher.

    Repairing a dashlight

    If it's just the cigarette lighter plug, check eBay for replacement plugs. I'm not familiar with this light, but if it's strobe or LED, it may be polarity sensitive, and if hooked up backwards, may destroy the electronics.

    Wail v. Yelp- really make any difference?

    I've found the real, old fashioned air horn tends to get their attention better than electronic sirens of any tone, but you still need to use sirens to signal your need for the right of way. And it's required by law.

    Ammo preference

    One of the major issues the FBI was concerned with was penetration out the back of the suspect, with potential injury to bystanders, thus the preferred limit on penetration.

    Wail v. Yelp- really make any difference?

    If I might ask a dumb question, if it can't be heard in the cab, how can motorists hear it so well?

    Look what I found at the city shop

    Wow. What a waste of taxpayer money!
