I asked him about a pair of M6s while back and he could do those.

Brian,
You converted about 20 Whelen LINZ6's and several Vertex's for me a while back. One of the heads that you were able to exchange under warranty has a moisture problem, so I opened it up and dried it out. Now only half of the leds work. This was a blue LINZ6 that you converted to amber. I am done dealing with this problematic head, so I trashed it. I am using one of the "smart" heads you converted for me as a temp. fill in, but it only works correctly in flash mode. When I switch to "arrowstick" mode, left, right, or center out, the head doesn't light up. My question is: If I buy a Whelen amber LINZ6 from here or ebay, will the color match?

i use factory color leds. as long as they are dated around the same time they should match no problem.

I bought a Amber cornered liberty lfl bar and need to change 2 corners to green, and or 1 green and white( takedown add on ) and a amber corner to amber white ( takedown add on ) and the other from Amber to green, these are the extended corners 12 I think. Thoughts, costs?

Depending on manufacture date of the modules your looking at $2 to $5 per led plus shipping

Currently have a DUO 48 Liberty II (IB8DEDE) that's R/W - B/W and the same in the rear but switch the white out for amber for the TA. Looking to get a total price minus shipping on what it would cost to have the red in 8 DUO heads switched to blue (2 of those are corner modules). Would I have to get the entire bar done to make everything look the same or are the LED's the same comparison wise?

The red i can match, shouldnt be an issue. Whelen used 2 different leds on those modules depending in the vintage. Feel free send me a PM and we can discuss pricing based on what it was equipped with
