    As mentioned in this thread here (https://elightbars.org/forums/threads/whelen-centurion-custom-restoration.83690/), I retired this Federal Signal Model 25 from service to be part of my collection for the rest of its existence. I'm pretty happy how these things work out! The crazy part is is that I never knew these all-light AeroDynics were lightweights! Much less heavy than the speaker grill models, even if those have no speaker in them!

    I'll be getting some pics of the clean up process tomorrow. The amber lenses will not stay with this bar and I'm going to order a whole new different colored pair sometime this month. Pretty stoked to have one after so long :)

    After being removed from wrecker:

    It was set to dual left pattern (each side went from right to left when viewed from the back), but it must have come unsynced somehow.

    Very Nice.

    The Model 25 (10 rotator) Aerodynic is still probably my favorite Aero Variant..
    Grease the idler and reflector gears.. then see if the pattern holds. If not then it's time to start sourcing replacement gears.

    I'll take a close look at all of them, Valkyrie. I usually use liberal amounts of Vaseline on AeroDynic gears since that stuff gets to all the crevasses in the gears.

    Bwahahaha! Yeah yeah, you do that, Valkyrie....:p

    I'm gonna go with a real simple but well known lense configuration. Just gotta get 'em ordered up now ;).
