after installing the bulb I encased it with hot glue to keep it in place, the hole will be covered with mirror cut from a repair kit from the local parts store

do you have a source for the graphic? It would look awesome with the chrome/metallic vinyl.

awesome. I don't have the equipment to print any more, but I love the look of the metalic reflection. Let me know how that controller works and which one you get. I have a set of police lights I bought off ebay with the LED modules I just havent gotten around to putting them in anything yet. I do have a jeep that may receive them. I like the idea of the lense on the mirrors. Where did you get them? I'm thinking if I can get one red and one clear, I can paint the clear to make it blue using tamiyama (sp?) paints. We used to use the paint on strobe bulbs in our headlights for the extra red/blue. (although not allowed per policy).

I paid $0.55 plus shipping for this lol it seems to work good but not gonna be anything fancy, just enough to make a 5 year old happy, i cant find the lenses in clear but the search goes on, they are made by peterson mfg and are about $1 each

I'm curious how this build is going? I'm looking for a police siren to replace the one in a jeep enforcer I picked up, how did yours turn out and would you recommend it?

ya I like the placement, just was curious about the strap. I'm thinking I can fab one up from an aluminum sheet metal scrap.
