I think that area just above the bumper cover is used for air flow to the radiator. When I had my bra on, it cover that up and the motor seemed run hotter. You may want to pick another spot.

Probably not. Depends on local laws. Around here showing red or blue lights is reserved for emergency vehicles. At best it'll get you a ticket. At worst if the officer is a total jerk, or you hack him off, he could charge you with impersonation. They even get after those wiper-washer lights that were/are popular with the rice crowd.

Im guessing its illigal, but whatever, it has an internal on and off switch....But still, any ideas where it can go?

I'm not a fan myself. I have an 84 Trans Am and I cringe at the thought of cutting my hood to put it in there. I know for the show they had to remove the front bumber and replace it with a longer pointier version to fit that thing on and make it look right. If you look at the show car and another 82-84 Trans Am, you can see the difference. I did see a 2002 Black Ram Air IV Trans Am with a yellow one that looked pretty bad *** though. Anyway, you'll have to cut the nose of your hood to fit it on right.

Take a look at your State's Revised Statutes(MotorVehicleCode) and see what is legal and what is not. Most States reserve RED and BLUE for Police and Emergency Vehicles ONLY, but AMBER or CLEAR lights(ie. running lights) are fine. Even a nice sweep with an Amber light would look tough at night!!!

:cool:

Well, here in AmeriKa we actually PAY our State Senators and Representitives to sit around a plush office and dream up LAWS like ... stock vehicle height, weather the back bumper is higher than the front bumper, how LOUD a muffler can be, how DARK a tinted window can be, how much tread can be left before a tire cannot be used anymore, and HUNDREDS of other laws that restrict personal freedom. All these laws are assembled into the States 'Motor Vehicle Code' manual. It's not easy for the average guy on the street to get one, but you better NOT break one of the laws. Why? Because EVERY cop carries one in the car with him so they can all be enforced!(at his discretion, of course). The good news is that EVERY library in every town in every State has a copy as part of the State Statutes, found in the Reference Section of the Library!
