Interesting New Installation on RPS Crown Vic

I was picking up some equipment from the shop today and there was an RPS (Regina Police Service) crown vic parked just outside the install bay. I stopped by it to take a quick peek and noticed that either the RPS shop or this contractor had installed a LIN3 or LIN4 where a HAW would usually be installed. The LIN fits in there just perfectly and it wasn't very noticeable until you looked right at it.


Then tonight, after responding to an accident, the RPS car that arrived on scene had the very same setup of a LIN in each headlight. Talk about a huge difference that thing makes compared to the Vertex's on the other cars. Just wondering if anybody else has ever tried an install like this and what their results were? And it's also something for others to consider when you want a good amount of output for intersection type lights.


**EDIT** I wasn't able to get a picture, but I'll take a look and see if I can get one providing the car is still there.

This is something I'd thought about before but never seen, its a wonder that nobody's done it before.

Its something the OPP have been doing for.. oh.. about 5 years now?
Yeah you know me. :lol: Anyway I would say they either take the housing completely apart and reseal it after the install or it might be like the Federal Signal Charger LAW system for the front.

I wonder if they're still using the TIR3s, or perhaps have changed to maybe a LINZ6 or something along those lines?

Some of those pictures are pretty recent, so I'm pretty sure they are still using the TIR3's. However, in Regina here, RPS is using LINZ6's (was confirmed).
