    7160-I see you're new to the forums, so I'm going to be nice to you. This topic has been discussed AD NAUSEUM here. I would recommend you doing a search, as there are many MANY threads here. There are a few going on in the volunteers section. I hope you have thick skin, because this thread will go down in flames like the hindenberg.

    Wink Interesting thread

    What an original thread! I am sure that everybody will join me in working out what to do with the lights--painful maybe, but not impossible with a bit of imagination.

    My way would consist of putting them thru a crusher until they resemble grains of sand --then mix with molasses, or as we say over here treacle--then this is the good part, get one of your wackerish mates to give you a enema with the mixture.

    Here at our department, we issue the Whelagalls XMT-5gazillion light bar, two sets of wig-wags, standard red bubble light(incase the lightbar goes out), Whacker GRL-4200's for the grill of your vehicle, and 2 LCD-94533's, which are LCD strobes for the windows. As an added bonus, we issue a lead foot to prop the gas pedal down when lights are turned on.

    Your state laws may be different, some states only allow blue lights and you can only have 8 of them.

    My POV's have headlights, tail lights, a third brake light and four way flashers as per NHTSA standards and a pair of factory installed fog lamps.

    I think we should name the dead horse "Lazarus", because he has been brought up from the dead so many times!
