Excellent DIY. It looks more of a professional job.
1 month of work on this job has really paid off.

I don't have a night shot now but i have a shot in daylight. Looks like this... however, i'll make a video soon and post, you will get a better idea.

P.S. The light is very old and a small piece has broken, but it works well.

EDIT: the red glowing rectangle keeps moving seamlessly from side to side.
The yellow ones are the turn indicators and can be disabled if necessary.

Thanks. I saw some videos on youtube and pictures on the net how these lights work.



They seem to be pretty expensive, let me look around for a more subtle type of the scanner light.

I'm not sure if the scanner is legal ( but then again , what form of bling lighting is , but read that the scanner type light display is to be used only by cops , ambulances , vip vehicles etc, kinda like the rotating light on top.
