Aerodynic restore (my 1st)

My first Aero. Model 25CF A1H with tube mounting feet. Came to me in pretty darn good working order. Everything functioned well, just needed a gear tooth adjustment and some grease on the motor gear assembly. I know the model A1H means halogen, but the rotor bulbs all had 12watt incandescent bulbs, and the CF had 6watt incan. bulbs. Since its either going to be sold, or kept as a wall hanger I'll up the Cf bulbs to match the rotors. The wiring harness was cut short and in need of redoing as well.

Cosmetically the domes weren't in bad shape, just dirty and missing the top straps (sourcing those now). Some minor crazing due to age, a few scratches, but no cracks. The end caps were intact, just missing the screws/plates that hold the cap to the dome end (fixed), 2 end cap to frame bolts (hardware store trip should fix that), and one of the metal Aerodynic name plates (still looking for that). Some pics to show progress thus far. Planning on video soon.

Like it. We put one on our squad truck back in the 80s. It replaced a Beaconray 176. It was all red with clear panels on the Crossfire and 2 clear panels on the back -either side of booster real. The Mars 888 died.

Also added flashing Amber par36s to the back.

See before and after pics. We had a blue 888 lens before light died

It was incandescent bulbs for rotators and halogen for CF

I think this one had the clear center at one point in its life before I got it. The red dome sections in front/ rear of the CF are in much better color shape. More red less orange.

Quick note to say the 'H' in A1H is simply a series designation, it is not the 'H' that signifies halogen bulbs. The halogen 'H' is found in the basic model number. Though the 25CF didn't come in a halogen variant that I'm aware of, had it, the model would've been something like 25CFH. To use actual models, the 24EA had incadescent bulbs and the 24EAH halogen.
