I love the theme of clear outer optics with colored filters inside. Good luck buffing the outers. She's going to look beautiful when you're done. Pls keep the pics coming! Tx!

Just spent the last couple of days getting these two characters to flash again. One had the same part number as yours, "4A13D11518-41".
Interestingly, the circuit board seems virtually identical to Whelen's aircraft strobe PS model "A413A,HDA,DF-14".
The aircraft PS had bigger capacitors (450uf), doesn't have the low-power latching relay (plus a jumper wire I don't understand it yet).

8000s (and 5000s!) are so cool!

How are your lenses coming along? Well, I hope.
Lens restoration seems like magic to me :)

I have some old Memphis bars myself. I'm all about keeping things original, but if you want a super easy way to mod these bars to make them functional, Whelen Guardians fit perfectly on each side of the bar under the 8000 lenses - don't even have to take the Guardian lens off. The strobes in the Guardian also align perfectly with where the 360's and the directionals should be.

Would you sell a Memphis bar? I have a huge collection of 80/90/8000 bars and I appreciate you selling one

Not right now. I am helping another guy restore some old Memphis Fire apparatus and I don't wanna get caught short. Check back with me later on.
