yeah im goin to sve up for a wheelen strobe set for the headlights. but todayi boguht a simple strobe set and put that in my car. i think it looks pretty sweet. what i did was, in the footwell, there are lights there that light up. and i took those light bulbs out, and mounted the strobe inside there. it looks pretty sleek. i wanted to do a DIY mod so i figured y not. will post pics if u want.

i have strobes... there fun to mess with people sometimes its not like there on all the time and you can't see them when there off. got pulled over the other day for having them on cause my friend was at the light as i was making a right... didn't even see the cop(i usually look around before i put them on). got a gold pba card so i got out of it. he was pretty pissed though i got the federal signal kit 90 watts. i like it but not a lot of patterens. go for the whelen i heard theres a ton of patterens.

It would be cleaner with some clears and silvervisions:thumbup: Strobes are useful for shows but if ypou flash them on the street and the police see it have fun explaining that one. They might charge you with impersonating a cop:lmao:
