It would be neat if there were something like a Duo style LINZ6 or TIR6 (I know, two very different lights) - use it for warning and illumination. That side mount below the MX intersection light would be a great place for it.Shawn L said:A few months ago I freshened up the old mx bar on my truck, it got all new domes, upper and lower, as well as a new set of the composite code 3 feet, I wanted to add some leds to the feet and a Whelen LIN3 fit almost perfectly. I would recommend this upgrade to anyone.

Its a well stocked pond... lolFirefly Berlin said:I guess I'll be "fishing in Triton's pond" since he is the resident liberty guru, but here are a few pics of my latest mini libby.
That doesn't sound safe... I assume that if you are going to use this bar, its going to be a "throw" light for use on scene and not in response...? I hardly trust 4-90LB mags on mini bars... lolFirefly Berlin said:4 rubber coated 30 pound magnets.
Very cool looking bar... The little splash of read really sets it off...Firefly Berlin said:4 LIN 12 corners, 1 LIN6 smart head front and rear facing, 1 TIR6 smart head in each endcap and 4 1st generation cruise light heads in the endcaps as well.
All lightheads are blue except the two rear facing cruise lights in red.
For finally completing the bar I still need two clear 500 series lenses for the endcap TIRs and a Cig plug cable with on/off and pattern select switch.
If anybody has some please let me know.
Some strobe power supplies are designed to run two or four outputs at a higher power level than when all six are activated.tacomabanga19861986 said:ya my 6 head strobe power supply is a little different than that one, mine has a-f for output titles, and i tried the double output thing and i dunno
i hooked it to my dashlight and it seems 120w i think it is, was trying to "out power" the strobes, or either output going bad
i have my grill and front corner strobes wired together, dunno if it could fire em good, i know the whelen i got now hooked to em, when i turn on front output its really bright, and when i turn on rear right after the front, they get dimmer, thats why im thinking about the power wire not being big enough, its going from 14guage to a vista amp connector i think is 18-22 guage wire, might just make my own terminals and see if that helps
Holy CRAP. Literally. Wow.LRGJr72 said:
Wow. Are those the new wide angle optics??LRGJr72 said:
What you talking about Willis? He bought them at the same time as the lights- all at some flea market vendors booth- for a grand total of ... $8.98- almost as good as a "well used returned item" walmart sale! :bonk: :crackup: :woohoo:slash9dotnet said:Wow. Are those the new wide angle optics??
On a side note - His wiper blades are just as cool!
Are they on???LRGJr72 said:
For future reference.... Use Clear RTV Silicone to secure light heads rather than a 2 part epoxy. Much easier to remove if you need to (LED dies, etc...) and clean up is a breeze with mineral spirits. (A little Dab Will Do Ya!) :yes:oddone said:started out with old school mx7000 where the rotators are in what i call a pod as the frame does not have the ridges on it and is smooth then i took the mx7000 base lenses off and replaced with excalibur base lenses then took 12 whelen 500 series lin6 heads modified them to fit ( had to trim a little off each side a dremil tool works good for this with the cut off wheel) used double sided tape to position them then used a 2 part epoxy to secure them in place and wired them to a whelen ulf44 flasher.
At time of video and post i am waiting on the code 3 2100 flat top lenses for it should e here tuesday 11-12-13
