What are the model numbers for the old style tin can lights like you see on Adam 12 style LAPD tv shows? Are they difficult to find?
Now there's a thought!crescentstar69 said:I'm surprised no one has made recreations of the originals. They look pretty simple. I can't see paying $1200 for a set of the real thing, but I would buy reproductions.
Thanks this got my wheels a turning so I acted and we'll see how it turns out.dmathieu said:Now there's a thought!
CFD125 said:The front bulbs are GE #4001R, but are now obsolete. You can use the brighter version, #5001R which are still available in GE, Wagner, Tung-Sol, Phillips, etc.
(Find them on-line, or at any good auto/truck parts store.)
The rear bulbs are #4434A, and are very readily available. I bought a case of GE 4434A's, and still have a few left.
There is no left or right, but I would mount them with the grounding screw facing inward towards the middle of the roof.
